“We are very proud to again be a sponsor of the moot this year and support LGBTQI+ people pursuing a career in law. We want to make it very clear, that all LGBTQI+ people are welcome in the legal profession and deserve to practise in a safe and encouraging environment. From my experience last year, I know the standard of advocacy at the moot will be very high, and I'm looking forward to meeting all the participants.” – Carine Patry KC

“I am delighted that Landmark is once again sponsoring the LSE-Featherstone Moot this year. As a former participant in the moot, I know it is a unique opportunity for aspiring lawyers to meet LGBTQI+ and ally lawyers and learn about the legal issues affecting LGBTQI+ people in this country. I am very much looking forward to judging again this year.” – Charles Bishop

Charles will also be chairing a seminar on LGBTQ+ asylum on the Saturday in his capacity as Trustee and Secretary of Rainbow Migration. We hope the participants thoroughly enjoy this unique experience, and good luck to the participants! For more information on this Moot, please visit LSE website.
