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.
The Chief Justice presides over all meetings of the Supreme Court. They shall present the majority opinion of the Supreme Court, both verbally and in writing, to the Senate without disclosing personal information, including but not limited to health, legal, or academic records.
