Feminist Law Society gives a platform to university Student Union approved Feminist Law Societies everywhere.
If you want us to display the work that you have produced through your own Feminist Law Society at your university, email us from your Society email address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a university student and your university does not yet have a University Feminist Law Society and you and some of your fellow students are planning to start one, the first thing you would need to do is contact your Student Union who will give you all the information you need to submit an application to them to set up your University Feminist Law Society.
Your Society name would be the name of your university, followed by Feminist Law Society. For example, University of Westminster Feminist Law Society.
Different university Student Unions very likely work in different ways, but here is a general guide to what you can possibly expect from the setting up process.
The Student Union works with a hierarchical structure for a Key Committee: President, Vice-President, and Treasurer. You often need to have these positions agreed and assigned between you before making your Student Union application.
You will need a certain number of confirmed and named individuals who want to sign up as paid members of your University Feminist Law Society. These names and details will be added to your university's Student Union application.
As part of the application process, you would need to draft a constitution. As an affiliate of Feminist Law Society, you can adopt Feminist Law Society's constitutional aims:
Beyond the Key Committee structure, student Societies can build a committee with tailored roles that would help the running of the Society. How this is structured is left to the Society to decide which positions they need.
To assist new University Feminist Law Societies in getting started, Feminist Law Society has designed and developed a suggested University Feminist Law Society Committee Role Structure Template in a downloadable Word Document.
'Feminist Law Society Suggested Committee Structure And Suggested Role Descriptions For University Feminist Law Societies' in Word Doc. format
Feminist Law Society understands the importance of the work carried out by University Feminist Law Societies and how hard committees work to create their feminist law resources and events. Therefore, Feminist Law Society is dedicated to ensuring that University Feminist Law Societies have a free, public space to display their work.
Only applications sent by the President of a Student Union approved University Feminist Law Society, using the official email address, with the completed ‘Feminist Law Societies at Universities FLS Website Upload Request Form’ will be processed.
