Welcome to the Carolina Judicial Council

A unique student organization at the University of South Carolina, the Carolina Judicial Council is a recognized honor society. The Council serves a dual purpose; as campus role models, our members personify the tenets of our guiding philosophy, the Carolinian Creed, and we function as a peer conduct review board acting with the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity.
