Judicial Branch

About the Judicial Branch

The Judicial Branch acts as an independent mediator of disputes arising within Student Government. It is also the the ultimate interpreter of all documents and acts governing and transmitting from Student Government as a whole.

The University Court hears cases and controversies that are brought to it by aggrieved parties. Usually, these cases involve Student Government officers and specific interpretations of statutes.

Decisions reached by the Courts are definitive and provide precedent for future cases.
