General election legal briefing with BWB

We've arranged an additional call with BWB on Monday 11 November, 2.00pm to 3.30pm.

The Skype legal briefing will focus primarily on hustings guidance, with an introductory section explaining briefly the charitable status of students' unions and the rules governing charitable political activity, for context. It is supplemented by legal guidance which is also available in the general election SU guide. BWB will present and take questions for an hour and we'll then have 30 minutes to discuss any questions with members of NUS' senior leadership team.
