Statute: Eldon Law Scholarship Fund

Explanatory note

Eligibility for the Eldon Law Scholarship is at present restricted, so far as
the examinations for the Degrees of Bachelor of Civil Law and of Magister
Juris are concerned, to those awarded a First. The degrees awarded on these
examinations in future will not be classified, although the examiners may award
a distinction for excellence in the examination. The following statute extends
eligibility for the scholarship to those who gain a distinction in the BCL and
M.Jur. At the same time opportunity is taken to add a clause permitting
Congregation to make subsequent amendments to the statute, provided that the
main object of the founder is always kept in view.

WHEREAS it is expedient to extend eligibility for the Eldon Law
Scholarship to those who gain a distinction in the examinations for the
Degrees of Bachelor of Civil Law and of Magister Juris, NOW THE UNIVERSITY
OF OXFORD, in exercise of the powers in that behalf conferred upon it by the
Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923, and of all other powers
enabling it, ENACTS, subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, AS
FOLLOWS.

1 In Tit. XVI, Sect. XXVIII (Statutes, 1997, p. 144,
as renumbered by Statute (2) approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999,
Gazette, Vol. 129, pp. 1433, 1482), delete cl. 3 (b) and
substitute:

`(b) shall have either been placed in the First Class or been
awarded a distinction in one or other of the said examinations or in Honour
Moderations or shall have gained one of the Chancellor's Prizes; and'.

2 Ibid., insert cl. 5:

`5. Congregation shall have power from time to time to alter this statute,
provided that the main object of the founder, namely the award of Eldon Law
Scholarships to suitable members of the University intending to follow the
profession of the law, shall always be kept in view.'



2 Voting on Resolution authorising expenditure
from the Higher Studies Fund

That the University be authorised to expend from the Bodleian Fund B of the
Higher Studies Fund the sum of £25K per annum for two years towards
the cost of a post in the Bodleian Library in support of the task of
automating the cataloguing of the Bodleian's Western Manuscript Collections.

SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council, approved the following
arrangements for junior members to speak in Congregation under the terms
of Ch. I, Sect x (Statutes, 1997, p. 208), which reads as follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, may speak
at a meeting of Congregation, if called upon to do so by the Chairman at the
Chairman's discretion, provided that the Chairman may at any time terminate
a debate on the floor of the House and proceed to the final speeches and the
taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call upon nominated
representatives of the Oxford University Student Union if they wish to speak
in debate, and will normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
from among those who have given advance notice of their wish to be called.
Should the Chairman consider that the number of junior members who have
given such notice is excessive, he or she will have to be selective in calling
upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced debate in relation to
the apparent spread and strength of views held by junior members. If
informed selection is to be possible it is desirable that when giving notice of
the wish to be called a junior member should indicate (a) whether
he or she intends to support or oppose the motion before the House,
(b) whether he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
group, or association, (c) whether he or she is supported by other
junior members (up to twelve of whom might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all be admitted to the floor
of the House although this does not ensure their being called. In other cases
some selection may be necessary at the stages of both admission and calling
of speakers. If there is to be time to tell applicants whether they will be
admitted notice will have to be received in good time. Junior members should
therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the Registrar to be received at
the University Offices not later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the
debate in question. The name of any representative nominated by OUSU should
also be communicated to the Registrar, in writing, through the President by
that time. A notice will then be posted in the University Offices and on the
gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on the morning of the
debate, indicating whether all applicants will be admitted to the floor of the
House or, if selection has had to take place, the names of those selected for
admission to the floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the House will normally be
permitted to listen to the debate from the gallery. Junior members on the floor
of the House will be asked to remain in their places while a vote is being
taken.

Under Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior members are defined as
`those persons who, having been admitted to matriculation, are residing to
fulfil the requirements of any statute, decree, or regulation of the University
or reading for any degree, diploma, or certificate of the University and who
have not proceeded to membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation
is normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

Ewert Place, Ewert House, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7BZ

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was established in
1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-how arising out of
research funded by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The function of the
company is to ensure that the results of research bring rewards to Oxford,
and to the inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or royalties for the
use
of know-how arising out of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual
property of the University by setting up individual companies using venture
capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who wish to exploit the
results of research supported by non-Research Council sources, when there
are no prior conditions on the handling of the intellectual property rights.
Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund for paying the
costs of protecting intellectual property rights and for taking work to a stage
where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be developed
for market requirements. The company has established the Oxford Innovation
Society for major industrial companies, so that they can have a window on
Oxford technology and an opportunity to license and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. If you wish to
receive a copy, please contact Isis (details below).

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they
wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone:
