Section 1.  Ratification of By-Laws – These By-Laws may be ratified only by means of an affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3) of all of the members of the New England Law Review in good standing.  Voting for purposes of ratification shall be effectuated by means of a roll call vote conducted at a meeting of the membership of the New England Law Review, by means of voting by proxy ballots distributed to every member of the New England Law Review, or by a combination of both a roll call vote and voting by proxy ballots.

 

Section 2.  Effective Date – These By-Laws shall become effective as the sole and controlling By-Laws of the New England Law Review immediately upon the ratification thereof pursuant to Section 1 of this Chapter.

 

Section 3.  Repeal of Former By-Laws – Every vote cast to ratify these By-Laws pursuant to Section 1 of this Chapter shall also be treated as a vote to repeal the former By-Laws of the New England Law Review, which former By-Laws had been duly ratified by the membership of the New England Law Review.  At the same time that these By-Laws are ratified and become effective pursuant to Section 2 of this Chapter, the former By-Laws shall be effectively and for all purposes repealed in full.
