WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
Be sure to bring the following to your appointment with Student Legal Services:
- Student ID card and verification of current class schedule.
- Bring documents related to your legal situation, such as your ticket, bond paperwork, Secretary of State paperwork, contract, court date notice, lease, photos, videos, letters, emails, and/or text messages. If you have a criminal case, you will generally need to bring your police report as well as any body and dash cam video that may be available by a Freedom of Information Request to the police department. Please bring printed copies of all documents to be retained by your attorney. Attorneys will not review documents via cell phones, computers, or screenshots.
- Honesty. Sometimes students think it is better not to share if we do not know certain things about them or their legal situations. In fact, the opposite is true. Your attorney needs all relevant information – the good and the bad – to properly advise you. Remember that communications with Student Legal Services are confidential as required by the attorney-client privilege.
