Student Legal Services

University Student Legal Services (USLS) was created by Student Government to provide high quality legal services to currently enrolled NC State students. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation funded by student fees, which provides affordability for the students. The purpose of the service is to provide legal education, advice, and representation within the scope of the prepaid student legal services plan that is registered with the North Carolina State Bar. The office promotes preventative law, enabling the students to make educated choices that will hopefully resolve their legal issues with as little disruption to their well-being and academic goals as possible. USLS provides advice, limited court representation, document creation and review as wells as educational seminars and materials on legal issues affecting students. The usual areas of law that most impact students are landlord tenant, consumer matters, employment questions, immigration, traffic and DMV issues, criminal issues as well as domestic matters. 

Confidentiality

The staff are not employees of NC State or the State of North Carolina and as licensed attorneys are required to preserve the confidentiality of clients. All staff working with the office are bound by the Rules of Professional Conduct relating to nondisclosure of any information that has been discussed. The policy is firmly followed by the office to encourage clients to speak candidly about all information necessary for effective legal representation.
