About the Supreme Court

The American University Student Government Supreme Court, composed of five justices, is the Judicial System's highest court and the central trial committee of the AUSG Judicial Board. It has appellate jurisdiction over all Judicial System courts, and has discretion to determine which appeals it will hear.


Supreme Court Justices

Five Justices make up the current Supreme Court: one Chief Justice and four Associate Justices, all of whom are members of the Judicial Board. Two are appointed by the President and two are appointed by the Speaker, with the Chief Justice appointed jointly by both the President and Speaker. All require Senate confirmation.
