Hello there, I’m Jacob, a Second year law student. Over the last year I’ve gained a great sense if pride in our Law School. I understand how essential it is to get good representation of our law school in the SRC and I believe I’m the man for the job. I want to be able to regularly liaise with students or class reps. and hear everyone’s views and concerns, establish good links with the school staff to help with any issues and most of all to do my utmost best for our Law School. Thanks!

Further to my commitments as a first year student of Law and Politics, I would love to have the added responsibility of being your School of Law Representative. I hope that, through the rest of my manifesto, I can demonstrate to you that I have the qualities needed for this important role.

As a member of both the Law and Politics societies and by being involved with Amnesty International I think my committed nature is apparent. I would definitely bring this attitude to any work required of me as your representative. My activities outside university also display my suitability to the role. For example, my candidacy in the 2011 Scottish Youth Parliament Elections highlights my desire to represent others.

If elected I would maintain a good relationship with Class Representatives while endeavouring that all your concerns were put to the Staff Student Liaison Committee. I would also enhance our School’s role in the debate over Scottish Independence given the subject’s relevance to Constitutional Law. Regular surgeries would be held where you could raise any issues with me personally. Frequent consultations would also be carried out so that you can be directly involved in the management and direction of your course.

Hi, I’m Lee, a third year Law/Politics student who enjoys jazz music and debating.
In second year I served as the class representative for politics, and was elected President of the Model United Nations society. As class representative I fostered a strong working relationship between staff and pupils, whilst protecting students’ interests. Both of these positions have allowed me to develop the skills necessary for effectively representing the law school in the SRC.

If elected as your School of Law Representative I will:

  • Foster increased cooperation between the Social Science schools. The School of Law does not benefit from being a pariah in the Social Science department; more cooperation between Social Science schools and the School of Law can only improve every student’s learning experience.
  • Work to raise awareness of mental health issues within the law school. As your representative I will fight for improved and quicker access to counselling on campus, as well as combating the stigma attached to talking about our mental health.
  • Defend the interests of the School of Law by articulating our needs, concerns and views to the SRC.
  • Hold regular surgeries to ensure every student has a voice, and access to the benefits of representation.

I’m in my second year studying Law, and hope I’ll fit the bill for School of Law Representative! I’ll leave it to you to decide.

I enjoyed being elected as representative for several groups in my education and social life – I’m well-versed in putting forward students’ views to people who can help. These roles also involved organising fundraisers and communicating with both group members and those in charge. I lived in halls, so am familiar with problems which can arise. I hope to be part of resolving issues the SRC can help with.

Law is very demanding – anything which can be improved to make this time easier is surely beneficial. Those who know me know I’m approachable and friendly; for those of you who don’t, ask those who do, or if you see me please speak to me! I plan to work closely with yourselves, our class representatives and our College Convenor to ensure everyone is involved and heard. I’ll hold regular consultation sessions, and be readily contactable by email and the Student Voice network.

I’ll listen to and represent your views effectively to the SRC, and follow your idea or problem through until I find a solution.
