The Law Studentsí Council (LSC) consists of nine UCT LLB students. Students are chosen to represent the Law Faculty through democratic elections held annually and which occur independently of the Student Representative Council (SRC).
The LSC acts a bridge between staff and law students on both academic and extra-curricular fronts. We strive to develop a healthy student life above and beyond academic learning.
In achieving these aims, the LSC represents the student body in various aspects of the Law Faculty. Our members echo the student voice on the Faculty Board, Academic Planning Committee, Moots Committee, Community Service, Health & Safety Board, Orientation Committee and Information Technology and Equipment Committee.
Our Mission going forward into 2013 is:
Communication: to facilitate consistent and helpful dialogue between staff and students
Integration: to culture a sense of genuine community within the Law Faculty
Representation: to elevate student-related issues to relevant faculty committees and to create new platforms conducive to hearing and tackling student-related issues
Service: to meeting the academic and social needs of students
Leadership: to build on the foundations laid by past Councils in order to realise long-term goals
Legitimacy: to gain confidence from the student body as an integral part of academic and social life
Our Vision going forward, is to meet diverse student needs through healthy communication, effective representation and thoughtful leadership.
