The Student Legal Services is a student-funded program through the Student Governing Council which provides legal assistance to students that have been assessed the KUMC Required Campus Fee. The services are provided by a private attorney licensed in Kansas and Missouri. Legal advice is available by appointment only and is not given over the phone, e-mail, or on a walk-in basis.
Student Legal Services provides legal consultation and/or referral in most legal matters affecting students. Any information that you discuss with the attorney is protected by the attorney/client privilege. The attorney can not personally represent you based on this service. If your issue involves further legal work, you can secure the services of the attorney outside of this service or ask for a referral.

To schedule an appointment
What to bring
When you are coming to your appointment, please bring all relevant papers (ie tickets, leases, letters from attorneys, etc.). If you are facing criminal charges, try to get a copy of your police report prior to your appointment. Not being adequately prepared will make it difficult for the attorney to assist you.
