For the Student Government Association to operate honestly and effectively, we have a system of checks and balances. The branch that keeps everyone in line is the Judicial Branch, made up of a group of appointed students who epitomize strong character and the pillars of UGA- Wisdom, Justice and Moderation. The Judicial Branch approves constitutional amendments, ensures that the bills passed by Senate adhere to SGA's constitution and is consulted when controversial issues arise.
