Matrix member, Paul Skinner, and trainee, Emma Foubister, were judges at the 3rd Annual LSE-Featherstone Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Moot competition on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March 2018 which was held at the New Academic Building, LSE. Congratulations to the winning team from Queen’s University Belfast.
This competition is dedicated to the consideration of areas of sexual orientation and gender identity law. Alongside the associated networking event, it brings together LGBT and ally students, campaigners, practitioners, and members of the judiciary. The competition is named in honour of Baroness Lynne Featherstone, who was the architect of the equal marriage legislation in England & Wales, commissioned the first ever UK government transgender action plan, and campaigns for LGBT+ rights internationally.
