BOULDER CONDO FIRE: Students can make an appointment with SLS for help with leasing, insurance and other legal concerns related to the fire. Fire-related consultations are free to students, courtesy of Student Affairs. Limted representation may also be available at no cost. Call 303-492-6813 or stop in at UMC 311 to schedule an appointment.

SLS is now accepting credit and debit cards in addition to checks, money orders and cash.

 

For your appointment

Student Legal Services will need the following before your appointment can take place:

  • Completed intake sheet. (You'll receive a link to SLS's intake sheet after you make an appointment.)  
  • Buff OneCard or other government-issued photo ID.
  • Consultation fee payment. Payments to SLS may be made by credit card, debit card, check, money order or cash. SLS cannot bill student accounts.
  • Any documents related to the legal situation, such as the ticket, bond paperwork, DMV paperwork, Student Conduct/Housing & Dining/OIEC letter, contract, court date notice, apartment lease, photos, videos, letters, emails and/or text messages. If you have a criminal case, you will generally also need to bring the police report.

At your appointment:

  • Be honest. Sometimes students think it’s better if we don’t know certain things about them or their legal situations. In fact, the opposite is true. We need all relevant information—good and bad—to properly advise a client. Remember that communications with Student Legal Services are confidential as required by the attorney/client privilege.

Office hours

Monday through Friday

8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.; 1 to 4:30 p.m.

Excluding university holidays and closures. Our office is open year-round.

Because we have a small staff and the attorneys are often in court, we are sometimes unable to strictly keep those office hours. Please call to make sure we are here before stopping by. If you call while we are not in, you can leave a message and one of our staff members will get back to you as soon as possible during business hours. 

Office location

Student Legal Services (SLS) is located on the third floor of the University Memorial Center (UMC) in room 311. Use the campus map and one of the wayfinders in the UMC to locate the UMC from another location on campus, and the UMC map on this page to locate the SLS office from another location in the UMC. The UMC wayfinders are on the first floor across the atrium from the CU bookstore and on the second floor to the right of the elevator.

Schedule an appointment 

Eligible students should contact Student Legal Services (SLS) in person at UMC 311 or by phone at 303-492-6813 to schedule an appointment. An appointment should be scheduled with us soon after the legal situation arises.

Parents or friends may not schedule appointments for students with legal issues; students must make appointments for themselves. In addition, students can only use SLS for their own legal issues; SLS is not available for advice to students on the legal questions of others.Services are by appointment only; SLS does not have walk-in hours.

Appointments are made only in person or by phone. We do not make appointments over email or online because holding multiple appointments open while waiting for a student to confirm one is unfair to fellow students who might need the other appointments. In addition, our in-person and phone appointment only process allows us to screen potential clients for eligibility, legal situation and limitations on services before making appointments. Please also note that we generally do not schedule same-day appointments. 

SLS does not answer “quick legal questions.” Contrary to popular belief, very few legal questions can actually be answered quickly. In addition, it is impossible to ethically answer a legal question without knowing all of the information important to the question.

Students can make their legal problems worse by waiting to schedule appointments with us. By waiting, students can miss crucial deadlines (including some they may not know exist) or the opportunity to have SLS available for consultation or representation because we are committed to other students.

Services are by appointment only.

Communications with Student Legal Services are confidential as required by the attorney/client privilege.
