This Committee is also responsible for assuring that Student Government is abiding by the governing documents of the organization while reviewing of judicial appointments, procedures, and rules or the organization.

What are we doing this semester?

We are currently working on re-conditioning the Unified Student Code to help ensure that all Students know  what the rules, regulations, rights and responsibilities of the Student Government Body are, and how the Student Government is ran according to the University of Michigan Flint's by-laws.

We are also working on standardizing legal documents used by all of the Student Government Body to ensure fairness and equality in all legal matters when it relates to the Student Government of the University of Michigan Flint.

In the future we plan to implement conduct review policies in regards to all members of the Student Government Body to ensure that all members are adhering to the rules and regulations set forth by the Unified Student Code.
