Welcome to Student Legal Services         

We have been helping students with their legal dilemmas since 1972. SLS is staffed by practicing NYS licensed attorneys, a paralegal and part-time law clerks.

Confidential:  Your discussions with our staff are protected by attorney/client privilege. We will not discuss your case with your parents, friends, spouses or Syracuse University without your consent.

Near By:  SLS is within walking distance of the Syracuse University campus. We are located just behind Shaw Hall Dormitory on Ostrom Avenue.

Complimentary Services:  If you are a full-time undergraduate or graduate student paying the full-time activity fee, you are entitled to free legal advice and, in certain situations, court representation. You will be responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses such as court fines and fees and outside charges from other organizations needed in order to successfully represent you on your case.
