Law Organisations Speak Out in Favour of Physical Lectures

Posted On September 21, 2021

Yesterday the three student law organisations on campus, Għaqda Studenti tal-Liġi (GħSL), ELSA, and Junior Chamber of Advocates (JCA) sent a letter addressed to Prime Minister Robert Abela, Minister of Education Justyne Caruana, and Minister of Health Chris Fearne, appealing to them for University students to be allowed to have physical lectures.

The letter highlighted the fact that the Gateway Building, which used to be the place where a lot of faculties held their lectures, is currently being leased to Mater Dei Hospital and will be unavailable until January at the very least. This has led to dozens of displaced lecturers who have no rooms to hold their physical lectures in. 

The organisations also mentioned that there seems to be a double-standard being set out, as currently political rallies and standing events with 100 people can take place without the need for social distancing or social bubbles.

The letter ends with an appeal for students to be allowed to attend the University physically. A hybrid system of lecturing is also suggested.

The full letter can be read below:
