Office of the Dean of Students          


All currently enrolled UT Austin students can request a free consultation with our attorney. Consultations are scheduled for 30 minutes to discuss your legal issue and provide guidance for your situation.

In your consultation, we will:

  1. Review your specific legal needs based on your situation,
  2. Answer questions to the best of our ability,
  3. Identify options, including potential costs and/or benefits, if known,
  4. Help determine a path forward, if available; and
  5. Determine what follow-up support is needed, if any.

We don’t offer in-court representation. For these needs, we’ll make referrals to other legal resources, services, and information.
