The Judicial Branch of ASCSU was founded upon the concept of striving for the fair and equal treatment of all students during conduct proceedings at the University, whether those proceedings are through the office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services or through the Associated Students of Colorado State University.

The Court remains committed to creating a safe environment, promoting student success, and representing student interests in the CSU community. The Court as well has judicial authority over ASCSU. This responsibility includes interpreting, upholding, and enforcing the ASCSU Constitution, acts of the ASCSU Senate, acts of other ASCSU boards and committees, and the bylaws of the ASCSU Supreme Court.
