The Constitutional Council is the Supreme Court of the SGA and has both original and appellate jurisdiction on all issues and matters of policy, either arising from the actions of the SGA (including all of its subsidiary bodies) or the University. The Council may also override decisions of judicial bodies formed by the SGA or one of its subsidiary bodies, such the Interfraternity Council, Intersorority Council, the Student Bar Association, and Oxford SGA. Justices are appointed by the SGA President with the advice and consent of the Legislature for enrollment-long periods.
