Deuteronomy 16:18-20

“Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.”


The Liberty University Student Court (LUSC), a branch of the Student Government Association, provides oversight over the processes run within the SGA. Should an issue arise, the LUSC hears cases and helps to resolve any issues should they become a problem. The LUSC also operates the Student Appeals Court and the LU Traffic Court. 


File a Petition

There are two types of petitions that can be filed. The first type of petition is a Petition for Counsel. The second type of petition is a Petition for Hearing which is used to settle a dispute between two parties.

Ticket Appeals are submitted through LUPD and handled by the Traffic Court; if you wish to file a ticket appeal, please follow the instructions as set forth by LUPD.
