學界近日要求修改《大學條例》、廢除特首任必然校監等聲音不斷,浸會大學本計劃在今年1月至3月,就審視大學條例進行第一輪諮詢,並向全體師生、校友發電郵,邀請他們參與多場校內諮詢會。不過,負責有關工作的專責小組,周一晚向浸大師生、校友發電郵表示,由於諮詢會可能涉「複雜的法律問題」,專責小組前晚在會議上一致通過暫緩舉行諮詢會,等待大學就相關問題徵詢專業法律意見。

浸會大會審視《香港浸會大學條例》專責小組,周一(1月18日)在網站宣佈,早前公佈的審視《香港浸會大學條例》的諮詢會延期舉行,表示待大學就檢討條例的法律事宜徵詢法律意見後,小組會另行通知諮詢會的舉行日期。

在專責小組上載網站的會議討論概要中,表示收到不少意見,認為相關諮詢所涉的法律問題可能十分複雜,專責小組因此認為,就相關問題徵詢專業法律意見,是審慎及負責任的做法,因此在前晚在會議上,一致通過暫緩舉行諮詢會:
