Legal Services for Students

Service Update: At this time and until further notice, the Legal Services for Students office is closed to visitors and notary services are suspended. We continue to provide legal assistance and support to students through phone and video consultations.

Legal Services for Students in the Office of the Dean of Students provides counsel and guidance to currently enrolled students. We advise students on their rights and responsibilities in various areas of law, including landlord-tenant disputes, criminal citations, small claims court, auto accidents and insurance, personal injury, powers of attorney, and consumer matters. Our services are provided in a confidential consultation, at no additional cost to the student.

Legal Services for Students does not provide representation or advocacy on behalf of individual students with regard to their potential legal claims or disputes. If the situation requires legal representation, our team will provide referrals to other legal resources and information.

Legal Services for Students offers seminars, workshops and presentations to student groups and classes to explore legal issues before conflicts arise. Free notarization service is available to all registered students during normal business hours.
