In furtherance of its mission, the principal functions performed by Student Legal Services are:
When a dispute arises between two or more current UCLA students, Student Legal Services (SLgS) can provide only information to the concerned parties. SLgS cannot represent any of the parties to the conflict, provide our full range of services, or advocate for either side. The students involved in the dispute who seek the services of SLgS are first fully informed of the SLgS Conflict Policy. At the time the students seek our services, we offer to meet with each side in the dispute on a one-time basis to provide information regarding the relevant laws and resources. We do not advocate for either side.
Once the student signs the Conflict Information Session Agreement, an appointment for an information session is scheduled. After the information session, in appropriate cases, SLgS may be able to mediate the dispute upon the request of all parties involved. SLgS also will provide referrals to alternative dispute resolution services, such as the UCLA Office of Ombuds Services.
It is within the discretion of the attorneys to determine whether the services provided by the office shall be limited, especially in cases where the attorneys lack expertise in the area and/or the time and resources required to handle the matter would unreasonably reduce the services available to other students.
UCLA Student Legal Services imposes the following restrictions on its services:
|Initial Consultation (one hour)||$10|
|Ongoing assistance with follow up consultations and research (but no representation in dealing with other people/companies)||$30|

We are facilitating a program to have immigration attorneys provide a free consultation on campus for UCLA students once a month. Experienced immigration attorneys will waive their fee for an initial consultation and give students valuable information and advice. Students will be allowed to have one free consultation each year.
The next consultation day is listed under updates on the homepage. Please call us right away if you are interested in having a consultation, as there are a limited number of appointments. You also will need to complete the intake form (below), which will be sent to the attorney before the day of your consultation.Immigration Consultation Intake Form
