What representatives do

The representatives will be expected to meet as a representative forum 3 times in semester one and 3
times in semester two. These will normally occur once per month.

The representatives will be expected to attend a brief training session to ensure their effectiveness in this
role.

The representatives will be joined by the President of the King’s College London Law Students’ Society
who is considered, ex officio, to be a member of the representative forum.

At the first meeting in semester one, the group will elect a lead representative who will act as Chair to the
forum and who will be, ex officio, a member of the Board of the School of Law.

The School of Law is seeking student representatives to act on ad hoc working groups in the areas of
Learning and Teaching, and Research and the forum will be asked to provide these members.

The School of Law is seeking an engagement with students in respect of the student experience and for
this purpose; it is proposed that the Head of School along with the Head of Student Experience (and any
other member of staff relevant to a particular discussion) meet with the full membership of the forum at 2
forum meetings each semester.
