Michaelmas Term 2019


Jay Staker and Meg Howells

Jay and MegHiya! We’re Meg (she/her) and Jay (he/him) and we read Law and PPE at Queens. It’s an honour to be your Co-Chairs during such a significant term. This Michaelmas marks OULC’s 100th anniversary, and as such we have planned a range of events to mark this momentus occasion. We are also looking forward to welcoming the next generation of OULCers to keep up our reputation as the largest and most active Labour Club in the country, with a strong focus on campaigning. Between us we represent three of the caucuses, and so promoting minority voices is very important to us, and this is reflect in our termcard. If you want to know more about how you can get involved or just want to have a chat, feel free to get in contact with us anytime via email or social media!”


Hi! I’m Emily (she/her), and I’m a third year English student at Mansfield. As this term’s secretary, my job is to keep OULC running smoothy by minuting meetings and keeping the constitution and policy book updated, as well as generally helping out with other club duties such as campaigning etc. If you have any questions you can contact me at emily.jones@mansfield.ox.ac.uk. Hope to see you at our meetings!



Ali Zubaidi

AliHiya! I’m Ali (he/him), a second-year PPE student at University College and also the Labour Club’s treasurer for the upcoming term. My main interests are the Labour Party’s role in addressing global injustices through an internationalist and fair-minded foreign policy programme as well as development issues but for the coming term I will be laying those to one side as I try to deepen my love of the spreadsheet. I’ve essentially been tasked with keeping the club’s finances in order, ensuring we can run events and working with the membership officer in order to keep our membership list up-to-date; all of which is very exciting! If you have any questions about what the role entails or require reimbursement for attending or participating in any OULC events, feel free to get in touch with me by email at ali.al-zubaidi@univ.ox.ac.uk or, alternatively, message me on facebook!
