Student Legal Services (SLS) is a non-profit law office that has
served the students of WSU since 2000. SLS currently employs two
full-time attorneys that typically advise and represent over 1,000
students each year. Additionally, SLS promotes educational opportunities
for the entire student body that are related to legal issues facing
today's students. Students must pay an eleven
dollar ($11) participation fee at the beginning of each semester to use the services.
SLS strives to assist students in responding to legal problems that
may adversely affect their well-being or otherwise interfere with
academic endeavors. The services offered are meant to assist students
in resolving problems for which it would be otherwise difficult
or impossible to obtain legal services at affordable prices. In
this way, SLS helps WSU to accomplish its goal of fostering a positive
living and learning environment for student success and retention.
