Constitutional Affairs Committee

Purpose

CAC acts as a judicial review team; it can review the constitutionality of ASLC actions and legislation, and may invalidate either of which violate the Constitution. A lot of CAC work will be examining the language of the ASLC Constitution and Bylaws, and updating those which need to be updated to clear up vague sections of the documents. If necessary, CAC will also hold hearings to review if actions taken by the executive branch or legislation passed aligns with the ASLC Constitution and Bylaws, and the Student Code of Conduct.
