The Student Judiciary is the judicial branch of the Student Government Association (SGA). 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.
In addition to their official duties, the members of the judiciary are committed to adhering to the values laid out in the Capstone Creed. To encourage students at The University to follow the Capstone Creed as well, we host and sponsor various programs geared towards engaging students throughout the academic year. These programs range from classroom presentations to speaking events that have featured coaches Nick Saban (UA football) and Sarah Patterson (UA gymnastics).
“As a member of the University of Alabama community, I will pursue knowledge; act with fairness, honesty, and respect; foster individual and civic responsibility; and strive for excellence.”
