Constitutional Tribunal

Constitutional Tribunal (Student Court)

- Justice for students by students -

“Fiat Justitia - let justice be done”

The Constitutional Tribunal (Student Court) is the judicial arm of student governance at the University of Pretoria. We function as an independent, impartial, and objective student court.

The Tribunal is the custodian of the University of Pretoria Constitution for Student Governance, which contains a justiciable 'Student Bill of Right'. This essentially means the Tribunal is responsible for the resolution of student disputes, inter society disputes, and SRC constitutional matters. 

Judges also sit on the Disciplinary Committee for Students of the University of Pretoria.
