The Board are a group of adults who help with the legally-binding bits of running the Journal. While the student team are in charge day to day, the Board look after the long term intrests of the Jounral and make sure that we meet our obligations as a Registered Charity in England and Wales (no 1188626). As well as the permanent board members listed here, the Cheif Editor and the Mentor also sit on the Board to make sure that the views of the Student Team are well represented.
