Committee

Melbourne University Law Students' Society

The MULSS Committee is continuing an initiative from 2016 to open up student opinions on motions discussed at LSS Committee meetings, to better ensure representation of the student body and transparency of our processes. This initiative aims to incorporate more considered student opinion MULSS decision-making on its Motions.

MULSS Motions are major non-financial proposals, such as the MULSS Social Media Policy, Marriage Equality Statement and Recommendations to the Law Institute of Victoria’s Clerkship and Traineeship Guidelines.

Please read the feedback form and enter your considered comments in 50 words or less for or against any of those motions. The form will remain open until Midnight Sunday May 21.

The Committee has agreed to present those comments at the May 22 meeting before any other Committee member's comments/questions, in order to inform the deliberation on each motion. Please see the Thursday April 7 De Minimis article for more details on the trial implemented in 2016.

The Committee looks forward to hearing from you!
