The University of Tennessee at Knoxville Student Government Association Tuesday passed a bill to potentially add a Judicial Branch, the Daily Beacon reports. Similar to that of the federal government, the branch will absorb the current jurisdictions of the Student Tribunal, Student Disciplinary Board and the Student Life Council. In addition, the branch will serve as the "constitutional authority" responsible for ensuring SGA members uphold and carry out their "respective duties" per the SGA Constitution and accompanying bylaws.
