Umang Pandey
Our wide, varied and diverse law family deserves to be adequately represented and I aspire to do just that. Academic concerns, module structure or timetabling worries, whatever suggestions you may have, I will take them to the faculty with unmatched enthusiasm, perseverance and commitment. Liasing with the faculty for facility improvements to Bentham House like the addition of a cloakroom/locker facility or additional water fountains, will be one of my priorities so that our law home is the best and the happiest it could be.
Having experience in student government for over six years, and having worked with several mutifaceted teams to organize multiple events and conferences, I know I have the leadership potential and zeal required to exceed your expectations in fulfilling my role.
Nida Kadayifci
I am Nida. My name means ‘loud voice’. And I will be your voice (as loud as possible) between the Faculty and the University Committee & Union. As a second-year student, I will clearly communicate your concerns affecting academic performance and mindset while studying law. For instance, I will carry out monthly anonymous surveys in order to record troubles & suggestions within Activities, Education and Welfare & Community Zones.
Furthermore, I will specifically ensure that:
• The issues with Lecturecast recordings, ventilation and microphones in certain lecture halls (such as the Birkbeck Clore Management) is discussed at a Union level;
• There is more support from the University Welfare and Careers teams on overcoming the fear of ‘statistics’ and fear of ‘failure’ in law;
• Class timetables are finalised earlier as many students need to arrange extra-curricular activities before-hand;
• Available space is established in Bentham House to become a Quiet Contemplation Room (QCR);
• Daily room bookings in Bentham House is electronically shared in one document so that students can know when and which tutorial rooms are free for self or group study.

In short, being an empathetic, friendly and responsible person makes me passionate about receiving what we deserve: the best university experience.
