If you’re in need of legal assistance, you can consult with Legal Services. The attorneys provide legal counseling to students who pay full fees on matters such as landlord/tenant relations, small claims court, traffic violations, consumer affairs, simple wills, contracts, divorce, collections, criminal charges, and employment problems. They cannot advise you about tax laws, immigration, internal university problems, incorporations (small businesses), or real estate. In addition to counseling, advice, and other services, in-court representation is available in several types of cases.
