Herbert Smith Freehills Oxford Disability Mooting Championship 2022
About The Herbert Smith Freehills Disability Mooting Championship
You are invited to attend the Grand Final of the Herbert Smith Freehills Oxford Disability Mooting Championship, which will take place on 26th November in the Levine Building, Trinity College, Oxford, and which will be followed by a panel discussion.
Watch skilled law students go head to head in this mock court case to debate a legal problem about issues affecting persons with a disability. The talented finalists will showcase the challenges faced by academics and legal practitioners who work in this field. Audience members will have the opportunity to hear the reasoning of these senior judges and witness their interactions with contestants, and to also participate in a panel discussion (more on this below).
This prestigious moot court competition has been established by the Oxford Law Faculty to promote the intellectual study of disability and its intersection with domestic and international law. The free event is kindly supported by Herbert Smith Freehills.
This year's panel discussion is on inclusive employment in times of crisis, asking how can regulation and reform of the current practices for inclusive employment of disabled people mitigate the impact of the ongoing cost of living crisis?
This year's panellists include:
Kim Hoque (Professor of Human Resource Management at King’s College London and co-founder of the Disability Employment Charter)
Professor Victoria Wass (Emerita Professor, University of Cardiff)
Professor Alan Bogg (Professor of Labour Law, University of Bristol)
Sarah Stephenson-Hunter (Disability Advisor, University of Oxford)
