Equality and diversity essay competition for Oxford Law undergraduate students launched

A summer competition inviting essays advocating for equality and diversity-related law reform has been launched for undergraduates in the Oxford Law Faculty.

This essay competition is open to all undergraduate students in the Oxford Law Faculty, including those who were finalists in the 2020-2021 academic year. 

Competition entries will be judged by a panel that will include Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE, Christopher Hare, and Kristin van Zwieten.

A prize of £1000 will be awarded to the winner of the competition. This sum has been set with a view to enabling the prize-winner to take up opportunities for vacation work in the coming year that might otherwise be inaccessible given travel and accommodation costs. The winning essay will also be published on the Oxford Law website. A second prize of £250 will be awarded to the runner-up.

The terms of the competition have already been sent to all undergraduate students and will also be published on the Faculty's Equality and Diversity site.
