Following an Annual General Meeting held on the 30th of April, as well as the conclusion of its subsequent nomination and election period, GħSL is proud to announce its New Executive Board for the 2020/2021 Academic Term. Notwithstanding the extraordinary circumstances in which we currently find ourselves in, which has effected nearly every rung of the ladder within the legal profession, GħSL looks forward to remaining a strong voice for law students in all of their academic and non-academic facets.
The aforementioned Annual General Meeting brought about a number of changes in the organisation's set-up, changes which in the words of newly-elected President Matthew Charles Zammit, "reflect the organisation's intent to retain and strengthen its core values, while simultaneously update its modus operandi to better reflect the ever-changing needs and priorities of this organisation, as well as law students in general. “
"We are the first to recognise this organisation's long, varied, and impressive history, as well as its core importance to the legal profession during its years of existence. However, law students remain the life, blood and soul of GħSL, and we shall strive to represent them to the best of our abilities, by working with them, for them and together with them."
Valentina Cassar and Maya Spiteri Dalli, the newly-elected Vice-President and Secretary General of the organisation, opine that the addition of the newly-established office of the Director of Committees,"is the strongest admission yet of just how much our organisation is entirely and solely dependant on the cumulative effort of so many students, from all facets and walks of life."
"Strengthening our sub-committees is indubitably one of our main priorities: GħSL was never, and cannot afford to be, a top-down organisation: the majority of the effort necessary for the organisation to remain strong, relevant and representative comes from within its structures themselves, and it is indeed this area that we seek to strengthen during the upcoming days and months."
