The courts, or the Judiciary of Student Government, is the body of Student Government that hears testimony and provide remedy to specific cases. The courts are composed of the Supreme Court and the Election Board. The Supreme Court is the highest court of appeals and hear cases that deal with the Student Government Constitution, the Student Government Code and Parking Ticket Appeals. The Election Board deals with all Student Government election interferences and the regulations of the Student Government elections.



As an independent branch of government, the Courts will always administer lawful impartial rulings according to the Student Government Constitution and the Student Government Code.

We achieve this by:

  • Settling disputes between individuals and the Executive and Legislative Branches of Texas State University Student Government.
  • Will determine the guilt or innocence of those who violate the laws of the Student Government.
  • Protecting the Rights of Students.
  • Upheld and interpret the laws of Student Government.
