Appeals to the Appeal Court


When Council Regulations 37 of 2002, concerning appeals to the Appeal Court, were amended (Gazette, p. 124) to reflect the changes in Statute XI (Gazette, p. 125), regulation 1.10. should also have been amended. Existing regulation 1.10. should be deleted and new regulation 1.10. inserted as follows:

`1.10. Applications for permission to appeal against a decision of the Disciplinary Court under section 24 of Statute XI, and notices of appeal served under Part H of Statute XII, Part B of Statute XIII, or section 5 of Statute XVII, shall be sent by the Registrar forthwith to the member of court appointed by the High Steward under regulation 1.4. above and (if he or she is not the Registrar) its secretary, with a request to the Court to consider whether it wishes the High Steward to appoint assessors under section 28 of Statute XI.'

Sarah J. Clackson Coptic Fund

In Part 2 of Council Regulations 25 of 2002, concerning trusts (Statutes, 2000, p. 609, as redesignated as regulations by Decree (5) of 11 July 2002, and renumbered by the changes published on 1 May 2003 and 19 June 2003, Gazette, Vol. 132, p. 1461; Vol. 133, pp. 1151, 1428), insert new § 50 as follows, and renumber existing §§ 50–66 (pp. 609–18) as §§ 51–67:

`§ 50. Sarah J. Clackson Coptic Fund

1. The sums contributed by friends and colleagues in memory of Sarah J. Clackson will provide travel and research grants to anyone undertaking work on Coptic manuscripts including the viewing, preparation, and recording of the material, but not conservation.

2. The Board of the Faculty of Oriental Studies shall be the board of management for the fund, and shall determine the value of the awards and the terms on which they are awarded. Any unspent income which is not re-invested or carried forward for use in subsequent years may be applied at the discretion of the board of management in some other way consistent with the promotion of the study of Coptic.

3. Regulation 2 above may be amended by Council.'

[This change, made on the recommendation of the Humanities Board, establishes a fund in memory of the late Sarah J. Clackson to support research in the field of Coptic.]
