SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
You must schedule an appointment in order to use Student Legal Services. Eligible students should contact our office in person at 329 Student Services Building or by phone at 517.353.3716. You will be required to provide a valid student ID to verify eligibility.
You should schedule your appointment with Student Legal Services as soon as possible after your legal situation arises. By waiting you could be making your problem worse by missing crucial deadlines (including some you might not know exist) and/or losing the opportunity to have Student Legal Services available to you because we are committed to other students’ legal issues.
Services are by appointment only. Student Legal Services does not have walk-in hours. Appointments are made only in person or by phone. Appointments can not be made via e-mail or online. In addition, Student Legal Services' in-person or phone appointment only policy allows us to screen potential clients for eligibility, legal situation, and limitations on services before making appointments. Please also note that we do not schedule same-day appointments.
Parents or friends may not schedule appointments for students with legal issues; students must make appointments for themselves. In addition, students can only use Student Legal Services for their own legal issues. Student Legal Services is not available for advice to students regarding the legal questions of others.
Student Legal Services does not answer “quick legal questions.” Contrary to popular belief, very few legal questions can actually be answered quickly. In addition, it is impossible to ethically answer a legal question without knowing all of the relevant information and facts.
DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO CONTACT STUDENT LEGAL SERVICES!
