The UJC consists of twenty-five Representatives elected from the eleven undergraduate and graduate schools of the University for one-year terms beginning April 1. Each school elects two Representatives, except for the College of Arts and Sciences which elects three. Representatives serve as judges during UJC trials and are responsible for the committee policy and procedure.
A counselor is assigned to both the complainant and the accused in each case, and it is the duty of the counselor to give their party a better understanding of the judicial process and to represent their party during a trial, if requested by the party. Counselors are well-versed in UJC policy and trial procedure.
Education is a high priority of the Judiciary Committee. Students who are selected to be educators lead the Committee’s educational efforts to the University community. In addition, educators also work with guilty students sanctioned by the Judiciary Committee to obtain feedback regarding their experience with the judicial system.
One of the investigator’s duties is to question all parties involved in a case and college from them the relevant facts. These facts are compiled in a written report and presented at the time of the trial to a panel of judges so that they may acquaint themselves with the substance of the case
First Year Judiciary Committee
An autonomous subcommittee of the UJC, the First-Year Judiciary Committee (FYJC) hears all cases of alleged offenses by first-year students in the first-year living areas. Its procedures and jurisdiction closely mirror that of its parent body, the UJC.
