UW Student Legal Services

UW Student Legal Services (SLS) is an on-campus law office located in the Husky Union Building (HUB) Room 306 that offers free 40-minute consultations on a multitude of legal matters. The office provides a safe and confidential space for all UW-Seattle students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) who have legal questions or concerns.

Students seek assistance from SLS for issues such as:

  • Landlord/Tenant
  • Discrimination
  • Immigration
  • Protection orders
  • Name and gender markers
  • Estate planning (wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives)
  • Criminal
  • Divorce
  • Auto collisions and insurance

SLS educates students about their rights and responsibilities, provides legal advice and resources, negotiates disputes, represents them in court, and prepares them for small claims matters. In addition, the office offers general informational sessions and "how-to" presentations on a variety of legal matters, such as knowledge of rights. Regular SLS office hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, with more limited hours during exams and breaks in the academic calendar. Visit the SLS website to learn more and schedule a consultation.
