Student Legal Services (SLS)

Student Legal Services (SLS) is available to assist current UIC students in understanding and solving their legal problems. Funded through student fees, SLS can provide confidential legal advice, counsel and limited representation for currently enrolled students. Staff can advise or represent students in variety of legal areas including, but not limited to: landlord/tenant disputes, simple divorces, misdemeanors, expungements, traffic violations, and small claims consumer disputes. Legal matters that the program is not available to handle are referred to appropriate agencies.

Upon arrival for an appointment with a SLS attorney, students must bring their current UIC ID Card and a copy of their current registration schedule.  Request an appointment with our office, by emailing”
