International Roman Law Moot

Sixth IRLM (2013)

From 7 to 10 April 2013, students and academics gathered in Oxford for the Sixth International Roman Law Moot Court Competition – the first time the event was held outside of Greece. The Moot was sponsored by the Oxford Law Faculty and international law firm Clifford Chance LLP.

At rounds conducted in the St Cross Building and at All Souls College, teams presented submissions in relation to an alleged servitude, the applicability of the interdictum de fonte and a damnum iniuria claim arising out of the blocking of an underground watercourse, in factual circumstances strongly reminiscent of Marcel Pagnol’s Jean de Florette. The parties, Iohannes and Ugolinus, also contested contractual claims connected with the loan of a mule and a hypothec granted to secure a loan over the former’s now dried-out farming property.
