Student Legal Services

What is the Student Legal Services Program?

The Student Legal Services Program is meant to connect students with legal advice during the school year. We know that being a student is a lot of work, and we want to make sure that you have the proper legal support if problems ever arise!

Some issues that we expect to see are landlord-tenant issues, traffic grievances, drug or alcohol-related disputes, contracts, and name changes. You are able to schedule an appointment with our lawyer on various days throughout the semester and get the advice you need.

For any student who pays the Student Services Fee (Unless opted out, all full-time students pay this), this service is provided at no cost to you, so please take advantage of it!
