Schedule an appointment

Upcoming Student Legal Service Events


The Student Legal Service (SLS) office will operate remotely beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice. This means that the SLS office at 160 West Bank Skyway will not be open to the public or available for in-person appointments. We will also be suspending notary public services until further notice.

Scheduling a Remote Appointment

If you are an eligible U of M student, please email us at usls@umn.edu to begin scheduling an appointment. We will schedule new appointments by email or, if the student prefers, we can call you at a designated phone number (please indicate this preference either in your email or in your voicemail message). We will conduct all appointments by phone or by video conferencing. 

Contacting a Specific SLS Attorney or Staff Member

If you are trying to reach an SLS attorney or staff member, please call and leave a message at (612) 624-1001 or send us an email at usls@umn.edu. A front desk staff member will route your message to the appropriate person as soon as possible. 

If you are an existing client and would like to schedule a follow up appointment, email the SLS staff member you are working with directly. If you do not have his or her email, email usls@umn.edu.

Thank you,
