The role and responsibilities of SLSA Trustees
The success of the SLSA is depedent on the work of its Board of Trustees, a team of volunteers drawn from institutions across the UK, without whom the SLSA would not be able to function. Trustees work together and with members and the wider community ‘to advance education and learning in the field of socio-legal studies and to promote research, the useful results of which shall be published for the public benefit, teaching and the dissemination of knowledge in the field’.
Every spring, in the weeks running up to the AGM, the Board invites nominations for new Trustees to replace those who are stepping down. All Trustees are voted onto the Board by the SLSA membership.
This page provides information and resources for prospective nominees.
