Judicial Branch

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Student Association balances power between three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. Judicial authority is granted to the Student Court by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Student Association Constitution and to this end the Court is vested with the power to uphold the Constitution, interpret its meaning, and to adjudicate disputes within the Student Association and its members, as well as any UWLSA recognized organization. If you have a student organization issue, the Student Court is the place to go.The Court also acts as a liaison between students and faculty for organizational issues.

For further information on the role of the Student Court, refer to the Rules of Procedure. If you are interested in pursuing a matter of concern with the Court, please check out the Judicial Process Flowchart button below, along with the other buttons.
