2020-2021 Judicial Board

The Judicial Branch has been filled. We are so excited and happy to be UCI’s newest Judicial Board! We know this has been a wild and crazy ride for everyone this academic school year, but we sure hope to uphold the rules of the Judicial Board, and make you all proud! We appreciate you all.

Chief Justice, José A. Serrano

“Hey everyone! It is a super big honor for me to be able to be the Chief Justice of ASUCI’s Judicial Board. I am a 4th year student, and I have been here since 2017. My two majors are Political Science and Anthropology, and I am working on getting a minor in Drama. I first came to UCI under the intention of being a Bio Sci major, and going to medical school, but I quickly found out that that route was not for me. Since then, I have worked on the Katie Porter Campaign, done research, started a podcast named Just Two Lads, been a lead in a show for Brown Bag Theatre, worked on outreach programs for kids, been a head developer for the Coup de Comedy (a free comedy festival here at UCI), and I have been the captain of UCI’s only improv team, Improv Revolution! I once was a speech and debate kid with a hint of Mock Trial. My goal is to go into the public sector and hopefully be a politician one day because I truly believe in helping those who don’t have a voice. I have been a SoCal kid my whole, and grew up about 40 miles away from Irvine. I am a first generation student, second generation American, and I am very proud of all the accomplishments my family and I have achieved. Justice is my top priority, and I do not plan on being swayed by anyone, but only to serve UCI’s student body. Feel free to hit me up or come catch me at one of my Improv Shows. I would love to get to know more the students that I personally swear I will be protecting.”

Vice Chief Justice, Katharine Vine

“Hello!! My name is Katharine, but most people call me Kat. I’m a third year who is double majoring in Physics and Criminology, Law and Society. I’m British, but have also lived in Australia, Missouri, NorCal and SoCal. I love to travel and have an endless list of where I want to go, with my ultimate goal being to see all of the Disneys around the World. I’m a mom to an 8 year old, I’m in Sigma Delta Sigma sorority, I’m doing research on black holes and I’m huge into prison reform as my fiancé is incarcerated. Watching him go through the trials of prison for something he didn’t do and being harshly punished for refusing a plea deal made me want to help those that do not have anyone else. I see the racism and discrimination throughout the justice system and so I decided I would be the voice for those that may not have it on campus. I’m big into helping others, and want to see everyone succeed. I’m always happy to listen to people’s problems, tutor them or be a friend that you can both laugh and cry with. I have overcome an abusive marriage and struggled financially to get to where I am today. This being said, I am stronger now than ever and will advocate for anyone that needs it. Feel free to come talk to me anytime!!”

Associate Justice, Giovanni Longino

“Hey there! My name is Giovanni Longino (but everyone calls me Gio) and it is an honor to be serving on this board! I am a current 2nd year and a double major in Psychological Sciences and Criminology, Law and Society. I am from Long Beach, CA. I enjoy the outdoors and video games but whether its a simple dinner at the house or an extravagant road trip to ‘who knows where’, spending time with my family and friends is my favorite thing to do. I am a member of UCI’s Colegiate Mock Trial team and have been doing mock trial since high school. I’m a very outgoing individual who enjoys meeting new people and learning about their life experiences. I am a true believer in ‘YOLO’ and continue to live my life to the fullest even through the most dull moments. I not only care about the rest of my academic journey here at UCI but the journey’s of my peers and those to come. Students Rights are my number one priority and I hope to work with ASUCI to establish a campus that is diverse and progressive for positive change even when faced with challenging times.”

“Hello there everyone! my name is Kai Ferragallo-Hawkins (Pronouns: He/Him/His) and I’m glad to be serving as your Associate Justice! I’m a current 2nd year and double majoring in Physics and Political Science, coming from Los Angeles, California. I love nature and learning about politics, and if you catch me in my free time, you’ll likely find me either playing something, looking at random data or just listening to music. I’m the current Vice-President of the College Democrats at UCI, and I care deeply about making sure that everyone can be uplifted and that things are as transparent and accessible as possible. I hope that I can be a fair justice for all of UCI, and if you ever have any questions or just want to chat, make sure to stop by office hours or hit me up!”
