IMPORTANT — NEXT STEPS REGARDING THE DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURE:
On Tuesday 8th, the University is launching a consultation document on proposed reforms to the disciplinary procedure. This document will include a number of reforms that have been proposed by different bodies — The Office of Student Conduct, Complaints and Appeals, The Women’s Campaign and information gathered from feedback from DOS’ and tutors. They would like responses to this document from any member of the university (staff and student). On Tuesday, they will release the document on the university website and ask students to provide their feedback via email.
WE NEED TO FLOOD THE CONSULTATION WITH TESTIMONIALS/THOUGHTS ON WHY THE STANDARD OF PROOF MUST BE CHANGED. This can include the statements read out at Senate House, bullet points with arguments, personal stories and so on.
Crucially, to add weight to the argument that students would support a change in the standard of proof used in disciplinary matters from beyond reasonable doubt to the balance of probabilities, we have to show that there is strong student support for this by the sheer volume of responses.
THE CONSULTATION WILL CLOSE ON JUNE 22ND.
