Judicial Council


The Judicial Council (JC) of the Western Student Association provides final dispute resolution through either adjudication or mediation for conflicts arising between RSOs, between RSOs and students, within RSOs, and over WSA elections. The jurisdiction of the JC covers all WSA affairs internal and external. The internal affairs of other RSOs can be reviewed as the last recourse upon request. Services offered include, but are not limited to: document interpretations, conflict resolution, and funding allocation appeals.Justices of the Judicial Council are appointed by the WSA President and approved by the Senate. A staggered appointment schedule (which divides the staffing responsibilities between the current and former Presidents) allows for a diversity of viewpoints to be engaged, insulates the Council from bias, and aids the formation of an impartial Council.
