LSE LGBT Moot 2015–16
The Department of Law is establishing the UK’s first mooting competition dedicated to the consideration of areas of sexual orientation and gender identity law. The mooting competition and networking forum will bring together LGBT and ally students, practitioners and members of the judiciary. The competition is inspired by the Williams Institute Moot Court Competition held annually at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law. The Williams Institute competition is in its 12th year, and has become a major fixture on the American moot court circuit. The hope is to emulate the success of the Williams Institute competition as a forum for law students to hone their advocacy skills, learn more about legal issues affecting LGBT people, and network with LGBT members of the legal profession.
The LSE LGBT moot competition is scheduled to take place on Friday 4 – Saturday 5 March 2016, in the New Academic Building at LSE on Lincoln’s Inn Fields in central London.
