Associated Student Legal Services (ASLS) is a student funded legal service for activity fee paying students (students with 7 credits or more.) One full-time attorney meets with students on an individual basis to provide them with legal advice, limited representation, and legal referrals. ASLS has been in operation since 1982 and has helped students with uncontested dissolutions of marriage, stepparent adoptions, name changes, criminal misdemeanors, and tenant's security deposits and leases. To see the lawyer, you must make an appointment. There is an appointment fee. Come to the ASMSU office (next to the ASK-US Desk) and an appointment will be scheduled for you.
