The Regents yesterday held a special meeting to discuss
the proposed University judicial system, and draft any altera-
tions they intend to make in the plan.
The Regents contacted after the meeting said they made
mostly technical changes to help clarify language, making
no substantial changes in the judiciary plan. However, they
did not specify what changes they will recommend.
The Regents will meet in closed session next Thursday
with the judiciary committee to discuss the proposed changes.

Regent James Waters (D-Mus-

favored the proposed judiciary's
plan of using randomly-selected

Several student groups on cam-

provision is essential to their sup-
port of the plan.
On Thursday, President Robben

terday's session - indicated he
favors a judiciary which uses a
mixed jury of students and faculty
members to try all defendants.
