The student-led Judicial Council partners with the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct to hear and decide cases of non-academic misconduct. Cases often include violations related to drugs, alcohol, hazing, assault and battery, fraud, or sexual misconduct. Student conduct cases are often initiated from reports by the University Police Department, the Department of Student Housing, and the Oxford Police Department. These cases often include violations related to drugs, alcohol, hazing, assault and battery, fraud, or sexual misconduct. The judicial board provides a hearing process in order to assist students with resolving these problems. When necessary, the Judicial Council also hears internal ASB-related cases involving the ASB code and constitution in regards to judicial precedence.
Additionally, the Judicial Branch of the Associated Student Body is comprised of the Student Traffic Appeals Board which hears and decides student cases pertaining parking and moving violations on campus. The citations are often issued by the Department of Parking and Transportation and the University Police Department. The board reviews online appeals and in-person appeals requests submitted through the Department of Parking and Transportation website. The Student Traffic Appeals Board meets every week on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM except for the first week of the semester and finals week. The board will meet in Somerville Hall during the fall semester. Listed below are a few helpful points about the Student Traffic Appeals Board and the Online Appeals Process:
The Student Traffic Appeals Board is made up of students and is affiliated with the dean of students.
If an appeal is not initiated within seven business days of the citation being issued, the citation will be sent to collection to the student’s bursar account and will no longer be available for appeal.
A $5.00 appeal processing fee will be added to the citation amount if the appeal is denied.
The Student Traffic Appeals Board decision is final.

The judicial branch does not publicly disclose the identities of its University Judicial Council or Student Traffic Appeals Board members to protect their privacy and ability to remain impartial during hearings, some of which receive campus and media scrutiny.
