Student Judiciary Now Accepting Applications!!!!

The Student Judiciary is now accepting applications for Associate Justices and Clerks during its 2016-2017 term. Assisted by three Clerks, the Chief Justice and the twenty-one Associate Justices have jurisdiction over a variety of cases, including parking ticket appeals, football ticket penalty appeals, and non-academic violations of the Code of Student Conduct. Though these three categories make up the majority of the judiciary's caseload, we also resolve cases involving the SGA Constitution, SGA elections, and the impeachment of SGA officials. Candidates should be reliable, responsible, and principled undergraduate, graduate or law students committed to supporting the philosophies of the Code of Student Conduct, the Academic Honor Code, the Code of Academic Conduct, and all other guidelines of conduct set forth by the University.
