Law Students' Council - Vision and Mission
We commit ourselves as a council to upholding the principles of the University as embodied in the Mission Statement to the extent that it prioritises the interests of the students who elected us to serve. We will exercise caring student leadership in order to promote academic excellence, transformation and social balance and by remaining cognisant of historical patterns of disadvantage in doing all of this.
Our mission is to be a council representative of, and relevant to, the students within the Faculty of Law. We strive to be a supportive and service-orientated body that practically contributes to the development of confident, competent and socially aware law graduates.
To do so, we shall promote:
Academic excellence by providing peer support, guidance and mentorship services, and by fostering a caring environment of learning.
Transformation – not only as a buzz word but as being informed by the ideal of substantive equality and an acknowledgement of the injustices of our past, whilst consistently working at undoing such injustices in tangible ways.
Social balance by facilitating a well-rounded healthy student lifestyle through a variety of extra curricula activities.
