ABOUT THE COMPETITION

In furtherance of our objectives, the Centre for Legal Theory is proud to announce the first edition of its opinion writing competition. Our aim is to create a conversation on a plethora of themes and scenarios designed to incite debate and opinions. We are not expecting overly technical entries, but rather practical, engaging and opinion orientated content. We do not expect in-depth legal arguments, but rather, an insight into your opinion and your reasons for the same.
