Graces submitted to the Regent House on 7 October 2015

The Council submits the following Graces to the Regent House. These Graces, unless they are withdrawn or a ballot is requested in accordance with the regulations for Graces of the Regent House (Statutes and Ordinances, 2015, p. 107), will be deemed to have been approved at 4 p.m. on Friday, 16 October 2015.

1. That on the nomination of the Council, and after consultation with the University Advocate, Dr Jillaine Karen Seymour, of Sidney Sussex College, be reappointed Deputy University Advocate for two years from 1 October 2015.

2. That the first sentence of the regulation for Emeritus Professors and Readers (Statutes and Ordinances, 2015, p. 647) be amended so as to read:1

A Professor or Reader who retires after reaching the age of sixty shall become an Emeritus Professor or Emeritus Reader, as the case may be, without statutory duties or powers.


  • 1The Council proposes the reintroduction of the words ‘without statutory duties or powers’, used in the Ordinance for Emeritus Professors and Readers until 1993, to affirm that the title of Professor or Reader is retained on an honorary basis, rather than a new title granted.
