The Office of Student Legal Services (SLS) provides legal counsel, advice, representation, and referral services to Penn State University students at the University Park campus. Legal consultation is available by appointment only; advice will not be provided over the telephone nor via email. Any legal advice you receive will be the advice of a licensed attorney.
Who is Eligible for Student Legal Services?
This service is available only to University Park students who pay the student activity fee. There is no additional cost to students for these basic services but students will be responsible for any court costs or fees associated with their cases.
Before Your Appointment
In preparation for your appointment please bring with you supporting documentation, i.e. – lease, correspondence, citation, criminal charges, etc. Please come prepared with questions.
Prior to utilizing our services you must complete an intake form. Once you submit the form, it will then be reviewed by a SLS attorney and a legal assistant will call you regarding your eligibility and/or to schedule an appointment for you to visit our office.
It is not possible for each client to have immediate or constant contact with an attorney. Please allow up to three (3) business days for this initial contact as this office supports all fee-paying students (some 40,000 people) as potential clients of SLS.
Are you feeling under the weather?
For your own health and safety and that of our staff, please reschedule you appointment if you are ill.
