UCLA Legal Services
UCLA Student Legal Services is located in A239 Murphy Hall.
UCLA Student Legal Services (SLS) provide confidential* legal counseling and assistance regarding a wide range of legal issues to all currently registered and enrolled UCLA students. SLS is able to help students with a variety of problems, including: Landlord/Tenant Relations, Accident and Injury Problems, Domestic Violence and Harassment, Criminal Matters, Divorces and Other Family Law Matter, Automobile Purchases, Credit, Collections, and Financial Issues, Employment Matters, and Health Care and Consumer Problems.
UCLA Student Legal Services also frequently assist students with issues they have with other UCLA departments in such areas as housing, financial aid, harassment, discrimination, ADA compliance, student discipline, and faculty misconduct. SLS gives students the information they need to assess their options and, in appropriate cases, will negotiate on behalf of the student, as well as draft letters and legal documents for the student. Students may make a an appointment by telephone or in person, and there is a $10 fee for the initial one-hour consultation with an experienced attorney. The office is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
* All communications with the attorneys are subject to the attorney-client privilege, which means that the attorneys may not disclose anything that a client tells them unless the client authorizes them to do so. Students can talk about the most sensitive matters knowing that everything they say to the attorneys will never be discussed with anyone unless the students give their explicit permission. This highest level of confidentiality makes our office a very safe place for students to get help.
