Students can volunteer and participate with the Student-Wide Judiciary.
The Student-Wide Judiciary (SWJ) is part of the University conduct process and is made up of Hearing Representatives. Each involvement opportunity is a volunteer role and requires only a small time commitment per week.
Hearing Representatives facilitate the SWJ process when a student has been referred to the Student-Wide Judiciary for a violation of the Student Code of Conduct or other University rules and regulations. The responsibilities of Hearing Representatives include drafting complaints with charges, facilitating hearings, and offering plea agreements that may include sanctions. Hearing Representatives can be any graduate student enrolled in the School of Law. Students studying criminal justice or higher education law may find this opportunity especially interesting.
Being a Hearing Representative allows you to contribute to student conduct processes and determinations that are fair and just, gives you practical, hands on experience, and offers the opportunity to work directly with UB staff in Student Conduct. Interested students should complete an interest form.
