Student Legal Service offers legal advice and representation to Student Service Fee paying University of Minnesota-Twin Cities students. We also provide educational programming on legal issues to students, staff, faculty, and the community.
At SLS, we have seven full time attorneys, two paralegals, two support staff, and two law clerks. Because we are an office just for U of M students, we are able to focus our practice on the legal issues that are often unique to students.
Student Legal Services provides high-quality legal services and education that supports student success.
- Provide unparalleled legal service, advocacy, and representation
- Enhance students’ learning environment and support student retention
- Facilitate results-oriented programming and community engagement initiatives
- Create a sustainable program that meets the needs of students
