Bye-Laws and articles of association
The bye-laws and Articles of Association set out the rules on how we run as an organisation, and what different powers and responsibilites various student groups and representatives have. The bye-laws can be reformed by the Trustees and by Student Council working in tandem. If you'd like to reform the bye-laws, get in touch with your course rep, school officer or one of the full time officers to discuss bye-law changes, or email email@example.com
