Our Constitution and Bye-Laws

Liverpool Hope Students' Union needs careful and detailed governance, whilst staying student-led.

Proper governance ensures we serve our members to the best of our abilities and stay within the law when it comes to transparency, safety and finances.

We have recently undergone a through organisational wide constitutional review, resulting in a brand new constitution being approved by Liverpol Hope University Council in November 2016. This legal document describes why we operate and how we are run.

Now that have a new constitution, we are undergoing a thorugh review and re-writing of our Bye-Laws which will then have to be ratified at Executive Council. We will upload each Bye-Law as it is approved.


If you have any queries regarding our Constitution or Bye-Laws please email unionmanager@hope.ac.uk
