The Office of Student Legal Services (SLS) at Rutgers University was opened in September 2010 with a three-fold mission: provide legal assistance and representation to eligible university students; hold community outreach seminars and workshops; and provide educational opportunities for interested students in the form of internships and externships.

We are open year-round to all Rutgers University students—full-time, part-time, undergraduate, graduate, and summer. We serve all Rutgers campuses, but are located in Piscataway on the Livingston Campus. Interested students can make an appointment to see one of our attorneys for a free legal consultation. Depending on the situation, SLS may be able to provide you with direct representation. If we cannot help you, we refer you to one of our approved network attorneys, who have agreed to see RU students for substantially reduced rates. Our referral attorneys are experts in their fields, and sensitive to students needs. We also hold seminars and workshops on various legal topics during the Fall and Spring semesters, and are creating clinical opportunities for interested students.
