The Be Engayged Mooting Competition 2021 has received wide support and recognition from participants and adjudicators, and we are delighted to announce the upcoming Be EnGayged Mooting Competition 2023 (“the Competition”) to be held this summer.
Be EnGayged is a student-run initiative that advocates the need for members of the LGBT+ community to be better educated of their legal rights, especially when the LGBT+ community started to fight for their rights through Hong Kong’s judicial system.
As the judiciary is becoming one of the major battlefields for LGBT+ rights recognition, the Competition is organized to raise LGBT+ awareness among law students and 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.
Be EnGayged is supported by HKU SELECT (Student Experiential Learning Community Service Task Force) spearheaded by Professor Alice Lee at HKU Faculty of Law, which provided the venue for the Competition.
