What Current Students are Saying

  • “My experience with Student Legal Services was wonderful! Very friendly and caring in my time of need. They were able to help me better understand my case and made sure I knew what I was fighting against. They gave me options that I was able to decide between and I made my own decisions.”
  • “SLS is a wonderful service that I hope more students utilize. Especially given this is the first-time many students are engaging with things like renting, having legal services provided to students is a really great resource.”
