    COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY


    Proposed revision of the University's Statutes and
    Decrees

    Council wishes to advise members of Congregation that it will circulate to them for
    consultation over the Long Vacation proposed new statutes, and certain of the associated
    `regulations', prepared by its Working Party on Statutes and Decrees.

    Recommendations 5 and 16 (b) in the Report of the Commission
    of
    Inquiry (1997) (the `North Report') were that the Council of the University should `institute
    a thorough review of existing legislation with a view to reducing the volume of material
    embodied in statute' and a similar `review of the University's decrees and regulations with
    a view to reducing the volume of material embodied in such legislation.' The former
    Hebdomadal Council accordingly set up a working party to carry out this review. The
    Chairman of the Working Party is the Principal of St Hugh's, and the other members are the
    Master of St Cross and Professor M.R. Freedland. The secretary is Mr D.M.M. Hall, and
    two
    other officers, Mrs F.M. Barnwell and Miss J.M. Noon, also attend the Working Party's
    meetings.

    The Working Party is now well advanced with the review and has submitted its first
    major report to (the new) Council. It has recommended that Titles I--XVII of the present
    statutes should be changed into Statutes I--XVII containing only the basic laws of the
    University which are unlikely to require frequent change. These should comprise the essential
    constitutional material embodied in the present statutes, together with certain additional
    material which is not included in existing legislation but which would be included in the
    charter of a more recent foundation and for which, in the Working Party's opinion endorsed
    by Council, there ought to be provision in modern statutes.

    The Working Party is now completing its preparation of the seventeen draft new
    statutes, and Council has approved the overall approach taken in the drafting of the eleven
    of
    those statutes which it has so far seen. The Working Party has attempted to do away with
    what it regards as the unnecessary legalese and technical verbiage of the existing legislation,
    while retaining language which is legally effective. It trusts that this rewording, together with
    the elimination of details transferred to subsidiary legislation or elsewhere, will make the new
    statutes much more readable and accessible.

    The Working Party is also preparing preliminary drafts of the secondary legislation,
    all of which it proposes to categorise as `regulations' (although Council wishes to give further
    consideration to that proposal), which will support the primary legislation in the new statutes.
    These proposed new regulations are drawn from the remaining parts of the present Titles I--
    XVII and from the decrees, but have not so far been given the same detailed drafting
    attention
    as the proposed new statutes.

    In order to bring the new statutes and regulations into effect on 1 October 2002, it
    will be necessary for the relevant parts of the new statutes to have been approved by
    Congregation for submission to The Queen in Council by the end of the present calendar
    year.
    The proposed timetable is therefore that the revision of existing legislation should be
    completed as soon as possible; there should be a consultation exercise on all the proposed
    new
    statutes during the Long Vacation; the final drafts of those statutes, prepared in the light of
    the comments received in the consultation exercise, should be submitted to Congregation in
    Michaelmas Term for approval; and finally, if and when Congregation's approval has been
    obtained, the relevant parts should be submitted for `Queen-in-Council' approval.

    The completion of the drafting of the associated regulations will take place during
    the academic year 2001--2. Council or (where appropriate) Congregation would then formally
    make the new regulations, to come into force on the same date as the new statutes, after
    which these regulations could be amended from time to time in the normal way either by
    Council or Congregation, or by any body or person to which Council had delegated
    responsibility for the regulations concerned, as appropriate. Both the proposed initial
    regulations and any subsequent amendments would on publication be subject to challenge in
    Congregation in the same way as existing decrees and regulations.

    There are two aspects of the proposed new procedures in Congregation to which
    Council wishes to draw particular attention. First, it is the Working Party's view, endorsed
    by Council, that the present procedure for the promotion of a statute whereby there first has
    to be a minimum notice period of nineteen days, after which the statute is submitted to
    Congregation for promulgation, and only at least fourteen days after that can Congregation
    vote on the enacting part of the statute, is unnecessarily cumbersome and protracted. The
    proposed new regulations for procedures in Congregation, which could be changed only by
    Congregation itself and not by Council, would therefore include provision reducing this
    process to a single period of notice, after which the enacting part of the statute could be
    submitted immediately to Congregation for approval. There would remain the same
    opportunities as at present for members of Congregation to propose amendments to the
    enacting part, or to reject the entire statute.

    Secondly, the present procedures permit the submission by six or more members
    of
    Congregation of proposed further amendments to a statute which has already been amended
    by Congregation at an earlier meeting. Use has not recently (if ever) been made of this
    provision in practice, and Council takes the view that it is unnecessary: if one or more
    amendments to a proposed statute are approved by Congregation after the original version
    has
    been submitted for approval, it seems to Council to be adequate for Congregation simply to
    have the choice between either approving the statute as so amended, or rejecting it. The
    proposed regulations governing Congregation procedures would therefore also incorporate
    this
    change.

    In order to avoid unnecessary delay in the proceedings on the proposed new statutes
    in Michaelmas Term 2001, Council will submit to Congregation at the beginning of that term
    an expediting resolution which would permit Congregation to deal with both the promulgation
    and the enacting parts of the proposed new statutes at the same meeting. This procedure was
    adopted in Trinity Term 1999 for the introduction of the new governance structures following
    the North Report, and seems to Council to be reasonable in the present case in view of the
    previous period of consultation on the proposed new statutes.

    Council intends to circulate, before the Long Vacation, to all members of
    Congregation the complete set of draft new statutes, together with the preliminary drafts of
    the regulations associated with the statutes governing Congregation, Council, and Divisions,
    Faculties, Sub-faculties, Departments, and the Department for Continuing Education. As
    explained above, these draft regulations will require further attention, and they will be
    circulated at this stage for illustrative purposes only. Similar preliminary drafts of the other
    regulations so far prepared will be available to members of Congregation, on request, from
    the Working Party's secretary (Mr D.M.M. Hall, University Offices, Wellington Square;
    e-mail: David.Hall@admin.ox.ac.uk; telephone: (2)70236).

    Members of Congregation will be requested to send their comments on the draft
    statutes to the Working Party's secretary so as to reach him not later than the Wednesday of
    First Week in Michaelmas Term, Wednesday, 10 October. Meanwhile
    the
    expediting resolution referred to above will be on the agenda for the meeting of Congregation
    the previous day, Tuesday, 9 October. Final drafts of the proposed new statutes should then
    be published in the Gazette of Fifth Week for consideration at the meeting
    of
    Congregation in Eighth Week, on Tuesday, 27 November.

    Schedule of Papers

    I (a) Current Issues in Theology

    Candidates will be expcted to discuss problems of theological method and to
    show a critical understanding of the main themes in systematic theology,
    taking account of the impact on Christian theology of contemporary
    philosophy, critical historical studies, the natural and social sciences, and
    non-Christian religions and ideologies. Further details of this paper are given
    under the regulations for the degree of M.Phil. in Theology (Christian
    Doctrine, Section D—Issues in Theology with special reference to
    Patristic
    Theology).

    By permission of the Faculty Board paper (b) may be
    taken as an alternative:

    (b) The Nature of Religion

    The aim of this paper is to examine the main classical and contemporary
    approaches to the study of religions, the problems involved in the comparative
    study of religions, and the relation between religious belief, theology, and the
    study of religions. Further details of this paper are given under the regulations
    for the degree of Master of Studies in the Study of Religion, of which it is a
    component.

    II The Nature of Science

    The aim of this paper is to examine issues in the history and philosophy of
    science that illuminate the nature of science and the grounds on which
    scientific knowledge is routinely differentiated from other bodies of
    knowledge.

    By studying crucial episodes in the history of science and cultural issues
    in
    the philosophy of science, students should develop a sound grasp of the
    foundations of scientific knowledge, the nature of scientific methods, and the
    changing world-views with which the sciences have been associated.

    III Science and Religion

    The focus of this paper will be on the relation between science and religion
    as they have been constructed in both past and present. Competing models of
    integration and separation will be evaluated with reference to specific
    case-studies, including major figures of the `scientific revolution' such as
    Galileo and Newton and such later thinkers as Faraday, Darwin, and
    Einstein.'
