Established in 1977, Student Legal Services (SLS) is a small law office at CU-Boulder dedicated exclusively to serving the legal needs of students. Sponsored by the Student Government and funded in large part by student activity fees, we provide accessible professional legal assistance to eligible students for a fraction of the cost of a private attorney. SLS has several attorneys on staff who can help students make sense of their legal situations, explain their options and/or help them prevent their legal issues from getting out of control. We’ll even tell you if we think you don’t need a lawyer!
Our mission is to help students resolve or minimize their legal situations so that they can focus on school. We do this by providing high quality legal services to them through an easily accessible program that is responsive to their needs as clients and respectful of them as people. We also strive to educate students about their rights and responsibilities and about the legal system through consultations and outreach efforts so that they can avoid legal problems in the future.
