QLT and Matrix have teamed up to launch an essay competition, giving aspiring lawyers a chance to show off their written advocacy skills. There’s a choice of three questions to answer in 1000 words or fewer:
- “The decision of the Divisional Court in R (Bell) v Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust  EWHC 3274 (Admin) is wrong.” Discuss.
- If you could change one law or legal principle in place today to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people – which would you change, and why?
- “On the whole, activists and lawyers in the United States of America have been more effective in using the law to further the cause of LGBTQ+ rights than activists and lawyers in the United Kingdom.” Do you agree? Why/Why not?
Deadline is 15th March at 12 noon. Don’t forget to look at the rules for more info on how to submit.
