After receiving student input during the Fall 2020 LSA SG elections, the government defined a seperate judicial branch that operates distinctly from the legislative branch. The process to form the judiciary and define its rules took well over a year, and was handled primarily by the Judiciary Oversight and Election Code Subcommittee (and its predecessor bodies) as well as the Internal Review Committee.
The first justices of the reformed College of Literature Science, and the Arts Student Judiciary were seated by the government on March 30th, 2022. They are:
- Chief Justice Hasan Zai
- Justice Ella Sieger
- Justice Parker Short
- Justice Ben Levitt
- Justice Hope Fuller
The justices meet as needed to adjudicate disputes relating to LSA SG legislation and elections, or suits between LSA students.
Cases heard by LSA SJ are governed according to its Manual of Procedures. Information on the Manual of Procedures can be requested from Counsel Max Stoneman.
