London Met Students' Union is a democratically driven organisation overseen by a Board of Trustees and managed by a team of professional staff.

LMSU has several governance documents which explain how we work. As a registered charity, we are also bound by the law. The documents that outline the governance of the Union are:

The Trustees are responsible for ensuring the Union has a clear vision, mission, values and strategic direction and that these are applied in the union's everyday work. They are responsible for the performance and behaviour of the Union, as well as developing policies and procedures. It makes key decisions in regards to the union's finances and other important aspects. It also ensures compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements.
