Judicial arms of Universi
ty governments may under
take a muscle-building pro
gram that would establish
avenues of appeal and de
fine areas of jurisdiction.
Representatives of vari
ous student governments
concluded Monday at a
meeting called by Dr. Rus
sell Brown, associate dean
of student affairs, that a
study of the present system
is needed before action can
be considered.
"Most of the students
seem to be saying that they
do not know enough about
the courts," Brown said.
"So, we are gathering in
formation, on which we will
make decisions to recom
mend changes to the organ
izations." Representatives from
ASUN, Interdormitory Asso
ciation (IDA) and Interfra
ternity Council (IFC) at
tended the meeting. AWS
and Panhellenic were not
Scheduling a second meet
ing for next Monday, the
group decided to "investi
gate the present situation"
first, according to Brown.
"It is pretty early to say
in what direction we are
going," Brown said. "But
the students indicated there
is at least a need to clarify
the situation."
One clarification being of
fered by Terry Schaaf, jus
tice of the ASUN Student
Court, involves some ma
jor changes in the present
Schaaf. who said that re
visions are needed at upper
and lower levels of the court
systems, proposed a Facul
ty - Student Administration
(FSA) Court last year that
would be at the head of a
more uniform series of low
er courts.
In the suggested FSA,
equal representation from
the three parts of the Uni
versity community would
form the superior court,
Schaaf indicated, with only
the Board of Regents above
"The FSA Court would be
a judicial committee," inde
pendent of any one segment
of the University," the for
mer ASUN president said.
The one segment Schaaf
referred to is the faculty,
which dominates two com
mittees, which are subordi
nate only to the Regents in
their power over students.
The committees are the
Faculty Committee on Stu
dent Suspension and the
Faculty Senate Subcommit
tee on Student Affairs.
The Subcommittee on Stu
16th & P Sts.
ust South
of Campus
dent Affairs is not a judicial
group, according to Schaaf,
even though it has members
from outside the faculty.
He said that the group,
which varies in size and
representation, is too large
to be a truly judicially delib
erative body.
"Just as the faculty would
not want students to . r u n
this," Schaaf said of t h e
groups controlling student
suspension and affairs, "the
students should not want
only the faculty to run it."
Under SchaaFs proposed
organization of courts, the
ASUN Court and a student
tribunal or disciplinary
court would stand on equal
The Student Court would
conduct civil cases, as the
ASUN Court now does,
Schaaf explained. But in
stead of the current Student
Tribunal, a Disciplinary
Court would deliberate on
the guilt of an infraction
and assess penalties.
Currently, the Tribunal
only hears evidence and
recommends action to t h e
Office of Student Affairs.
"The current Student Tri
bunal is not actually a
court," Schaaf said, "since
it merely advises."
Although the so-called Dis
ciplinary Court would have
primary jurisdiction in stu
dent affairs, Schaaf added,
the faculty and administra
tion would still have a check
on decisions through the
FSA Court.
Ultimately, he said, the
Regents could make the fi
nal decision over any of the
courts, if a case is impor
tant enough for them to con
sider. IFC, IDA and AWS courts
would all stand inferior to
the Disciplinary Court,
with divisions under each
of these as needed, Schaaf
The Student Court jus

one under discussion, Brown
Information on the judi
cial system at the Univer
sity of Michigan was distri
buted to the representatives
at Monday's initial meet
ing. "This is to be an example,
not a model," Brown said.
"The Michigan system is
more comprehensive, has
the avenues of appeals
spelled out, outlines the
make-up of each court and
sets penalties."
Brown and Schaaf each
said these were possible
areas of weakness in the
current University system.
The Nebraska courts
have no comprehensive
statements on the jurisdic
tion of each court and there
are no formal avenues of
appeal. Schaaf said.
In the area of penalties
for infractions of rules, both
agreed that consistency is
also lacking.
"In the present system,"
Brown said, "we do not
know how consistent we are
in dealing with similar prob
lems." Schaaf pointed out the
variety of punishments for
the same infraction within
different living units.
"There are complications
at the lower levels we d i d
not realize before the meet
ing," Schaaf said. "Even
individual floors in the
dorms have courts."
A court code applicable to
the entire system is needed,
the Student Court justice
said. This would define
areas of jurisdiction and as
