The Birkbeck School of Law has put up a brief statement against the cuts on their website. This follows from a discussion involving both staff and students that took place at the end of the school meeting in the Council Room that was interrupted by the group that brought about the Open Birkbeck space. The statement reads as follows:
The School of Law at Birkbeck College publicly expresses its opposition to the proposed cuts to, and privatisation of, higher education. The Law School affirms its commitment to uphold the founding mission of Birkbeck College to provide open access to higher education.
