We invite submissions of up to 2,000 words in answer to the following question:
“Section 4 of the Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Act 2019 introduces a new offence of ‘entering or remaining in a designated area’ outside the United Kingdom. The provision is intended to protect the public from the risk of terrorism. However, it is not retrospective. Should it have been?”

The competition will be judged by Trustees of the Kalisher Trust and the prize will be awarded at the star-studded Kalisher Theatrical Event at Middle Temple on the evening of Sunday 22 March 2020.
