The University of Michigan is committed to transforming our students’ education by extending academic excellence from the classroom into real-world experiences that develop a global purview and a creative, entrepreneurial mindset.
Who We Are?
Student Legal Services (“SLS”) is a full-service law office available to currently enrolled students at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor campus only. Since 1979, our office has been assisting students. We have five (5) full-time attorneys, one paralegal, and a legal secretary/office manager.
Overall, our staff has a wide range of experience and knowledge of the law. Further, our attorneys specifically are all highly effective in their roles because they are familiar with the Ann Arbor court system to include the judges, county prosecutors, city attorneys, and other practicing attorneys.
What We Do?
The attorneys at SLS can advise you regarding your legal rights and represent you, if needed, in Washtenaw County courts only. It is also possible for the staff to negotiate with various individuals on your behalf (i.e. debt collectors). The attorneys also make various presentations throughout the school year, and they are also available to speak to student groups, if requested.
Your discussions with our attorneys and other staff are protected by attorney/client privilege. We will not discuss your case with your parents, friends, spouses, or the University of Michigan without your written consent.
