REVIEW OF LAW

As part of its regular rolling review of departments and faculties, the General Board has established a committee to review the Law Faculty. The terms of reference are as follows:

(b) to consider the content, balance, and method of examination of the syllabus, bearing in mind the relationship with the professions;

(c) to review the organisational and management structures and facilities in the faculty, including such matters as academic staff planning and recruitment; accommodation and future space needs; the facilities of the Bodleian Law Library; the relationship between the faculty and associated centres and institutes; the faculty's own fund-raising initiative and its relationship with the Development Office; and

(d) to make recommendations, bearing in mind the likely measure of available resources.

The membership of the review committee is as follows: Dr J.S. Rowett (Chairman), Brasenose College; Mr J. Eekelaar, Pembroke College; Professor J. Beatson, University of Cambridge; Professor R. Cranston, London School of Economics; Professor D. Feldman, University of Birmingham; the Rt. Hon. the Lord Rodger of Earlsferry, Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice- General.
