The Boston University Student Government Judicial Commissioners have the authority to interpret and enforce the Constitution. They maintain lasting records of binding constitutional developments for use by future officers and must remain impartial at all times. The members of the Judicial Commission attend every Senate meeting in order to provide advice to the Executive Board and the Senate on all proposed constitutional amendments, by-laws, and resolutions.

Hi everyone! My name is Andrea Gomez and I’m the Chief Justice for Student Government. I was born and raised in Maracaibo, Venezuela, but I moved to the United States in 2014. I am a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Economics and Philosophy. Besides school and Student Government, I am part of the BU International Affairs Association and I work as an Evaluation Coordinator for a research project at the School of Social Work. I started to develop an interest in law in middle school and it has continued to grow consistently. I was a volunteer attorney for my local government’s Teen Court Program, which tries real juvenile, first-time misdemeanor cases. I have also interned for the Miami Dade State Attorney’s Office, where I have had the opportunity to work for prosecutors in adult felony divisions. I have been able to assist in court proceedings, review evidence for current cases, observe depositions and pre-trial conferences, as well as communicate with witnesses, victims, and police officers. I joined the Judicial Commission last year because I believe it plays a vital role in promoting fairness, both in elections and year-round. I have had an amazing experience working with such a dedicated group of people and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish this year.
