3 weeks to go!

Three weeks to go to the deadline for the ILBF’s law undergraduate essay competition! Deadline is 29th February at 4pm.

Wondering how to tackle our essay question: ‘Should the right to protest be unfettered?’. There are many ways to approach the question and to direct your research and ideas. All great experience and practise for future interviews and research projects, as well as an opportunity to engage with an important question that is relevant not just to lawyers, but to all of us as citizens. And not forgetting the unique opportunity to win a week’s work experience with our competition sponsor, international law firm McDermott Will & Emery, and for your essay to be published!

Sarah Trotter, Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and one of our competition judges, gives her top tips and advice on how to get started in this short film.
