OxHRH Deputy Director, Laura Hilly, Judges Human Rights Watch Moot

by | Mar 15, 2015

For the second year in a row, this February Human Rights Watch London Network held a Moot Trial. This year’s topic for the Moot was the timely and topical subject of Extraordinary Rendition, the case before the Court being Khaled Shaladi v UK, which considered the role of the UK in a particular case.

Held in the UCL Moot Court room, law and human rights students from LSE  and UCL formed mooting teams on behalf of the respondent and applicant, respectively putting forward well-presented arguments before a panel of distinguished Human Rights professionals. This year’s panel of judges included Human Rights Watch Senior Legal Advisor, Clive Baldwin; barrister, Kirsty Brimelow QC; Chatam House Associate Fellow, Dr. Louise Arimatsu; barrister, Shona Jolly and OxHRH Deputy Director, Laura Hilly.

LSE came away the victors on the night but both teams demonstrated courage and professionalism which the judges took time to comment on. The event was well attended and enjoyed by all.
