As the judiciary is becoming one of the major battlefields for LGBT+ rights recognition, the Competition is organized to (1) raise LGBT+ awareness among law students and (2) train future advocates for LGBT+ judicial review cases. The project has been made possible through a seed grant awarded by PILnet with the support of WYNG Foundation to the winning team of the 2019 Law for Change Student Competition. We are recognized by the HKU Faculty of Law under SELECT, a student initiative supporting scheme supervised by Ms. Alice Lee.
