Every year, around Students’ Association Senate election time, it seems that the All-Campus Judicial Council is all over the news. Every time students head to the ballot box, there seems to be a controversy, and the ACJC has to step in and get involved.
If you like election controversy, or any sort of controversy for that matter, then ACJC is for you. And, in the unlikely event that Senate gets their elections under control, the council will still have lots to do. Besides serving as the interpreter of the SA Constitution, ACJC plays a key role in UR’s disciplinary process. They’re the ones who see trials of students whenever they get in trouble with security.
How can you get in on the action? Simple, senior and ACJC Chief Justice Rachel Morrissey said. You apply.
ACJC selects its members in the spring and once selected, you’re a member for life, or in UR’s case, as long as you’re a full time undergraduate at the school. So, once you’ve got your foot in the door, you’re basically set. The trick is to get selected.
Morrissey knows that there will be at least three openings.
The interview process, which begins April 3 and 4, consists of an application and initial interview by several ACJC justices. Those who pass the first stage get a final interview Friday, April 11 in front of four ACJC justices and four senators. This group selects a slate of justices who then go before senate for confirmation.
Anyone who wants to join must sign up for an interview by April 1 at 5 p.m. in Wilson Commons 510.
There will be an information session for people who are interested in joining ACJC on March 31 at 8 p.m. Any questions should be directed to Morrissey at email@example.com.
