The Australian National University (ANU) College of Law, through the ANU Law Reform and Social Justice project, is pleased to present the 2021 ANU Gender + Sexuality (G+S) Law Moot.
Sponsored by Resolution Institute, the moot aims to explore both issues faced by LGBTQIA+ Australians and relevant developments in Australian law more broadly. Our aim is to present an engaging and challenging competition that we hope will become a fixture for law students passionate about LGBTQIA+ and gender identity issues, mooting, or all three.
Conscious of our ability to consider not only the legal, but also the social implications of the problems we will be discussing, teams will nominate a charity dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQIA+ people as part of the registration process. The winning team will have the prize money donated in their names to the charity of their choice.
The moot will featured panel discussions by prominent members of the legal community with experience in this space, which will be open to competitors and non-competitors alike.
ANU Gender Identity + Sexuality Law Moot 2021
Open to all law schools in Australia and New Zealand, the G+S Law Moot was first held in 2020 and will continue in its online format in 2021.
In 2020, the problem question focused on the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) and the tort of privacy. The 2021 problem question will be based on international human rights law.
The competition rules can be accessed here. We ask that all competitors act in good faith. Enforcement of the rules is at the discretion of the organising committee.
The competition will be held in the last week of September and the first week of October, beginning on Monday 27 September 2021.
Written submissions are due Thursday 23 September 2021.
