Alliance Alert – 23 July 2019

Freedom of speech protected after legal intervention at Nottingham University

A pro-life student society – ‘Nottingham Students for Life’ – has been granted affiliation by the University of Nottingham Students’ Union after the initial decision to deny the group affiliation was challenged.

The Nottingham Students’ Union had sought to argue that the values of the pro-life group “did not align” with their own and rejected the group’s application for affiliation on that basis.

However, with the help of ADF International, Nottingham Students for Life was able to challenge the decision, arguing that the Union had a legal commitment to represent all students whether or not they agreed with their beliefs.

Consequently, the Students’ Union has now reversed its original decision and granted the pro-life group affiliation.
