The Case for a Re-Location of the Law School

The Case for a Re-Location of the Law School

Students at Victoria appear to have been adopting increasing liberal attitudes over the last two or three years. It is unlikely, for example, that a poll on an issue such as the All Blacks Tour could have produced such a liberal and enlightened response even two years ago as it did this year.

In the light of this shift in student opinion, it seems a little remarkable that we should just have seen the election of an Executive which appears, on balance, to be clearly right of centre. Nesbitt has been carefully apolitical up to this point; Cullen is a liberal; but the rest of them are, prima facie, conservatives. At least Smith and Nesbitt have a sense of humour, but the outlook for 1971 looks pretty bleak. The confrontation which must emerge between the SRC and the Executive will be amusing to some. Those of us who care what happens to the $100,000 plus we pay in Students' Association fees may be less ready to see the joke.
