You are invited to attend the Grand Final of the Jonathan Cooper LGBTQ+ Mooting Competition, which will take place on Saturday, 11 February, at the Faculty of Law. The event will be followed by a drinks reception.

The Competition is the first Mooting Competition at Oxford specifically promoting the intellectual study of legal issues related to sexual orientation and gender identities. For its inaugural edition, the competition’s problem question, put together by Professor Jonathan Herring and the Organising Committee, will focus on the constitutional interpretation of the right to marriage, the European Convention on Human Rights, and the right to private and family life in the case of a fictitious country.

If you would like to attend the Grand Final and join us for the drinks reception, please register below.
