Inaugural LSE-Featherstone Moot – St Hugh’s student wins

St Hugh’s College student, Clara Ludot, was part of the University of Oxford team that won the inaugural LSE-Featherstone Sexual Identity and Gender Orientation Moot.

The competition, named after LGBT+ rights campaigner Baroness Lynne Featherstone, saw more than 150 participants tackling a case on discrimination and harassment law. Clara’s team also included: Eilis O’Keeffe (Balliol); Charlotte Kelly (Balliol); and Alice Irving (Merton). In the grand final of the competition they competed against and overcame a team from BPP Law School.

Commenting on the experience, Clara said: “the moot gave us the opportunity to engage with some of the dilemmas that face modern liberal democracies, such as striking the correct balance between different and sometimes competing rights and interests.

“The way it was organised made it more than a simple moot competition: it was also a forum which allowed participants to exchange ideas and discuss modern LGBT+ related matters with people of diverse backgrounds, professional experience and perspectives. I was very fortunate to have a strong and able team, and I learned a lot from my teammates who provided me with valuable advice and were very supportive of each other throughout the competition.

“I’d also like to thank all the judges, volunteers and participants whose enthusiasm made our experience so enjoyable and positive.”
