Aberdeen legal challenge

In April, a pro-life student university group launched a legal challenge against the University of Aberdeen after its attempts at affiliation were repeatedly rejected by the Students’ Union based on their policy barring pro-life societies on campus.

The Aberdeen Life Ethics Society (ALES) submitted a new society application for affiliation to Aberdeen University’s Societies Union Committee (AUSA). It received an email which said: ‘We unfortunately are unable to affiliate Aberdeen Life Ethics Society as you are directly against an AUSA policy and so we are not allowed to affiliate you. The policy in question can be found at https://www.ausa.org.uk/resources/6045/ AUSA-is-Pro-Choice/ and does not lapse until 2020.’
