Student Legal Services Office at UMass Amherst

The Student Legal Services Office (SLSO) is a student-funded law office providing legal assistance to fee-paying UMass Amherst students and student groups.

We offer FREE, CONFIDENTIAL advice and/or referral in most legal matters affecting students, assisting them to identify and solve their legal problems. In certain limited circumstances we represent students in court.

We offer Notary Services during Summer sessions by appointment only.

The SLSO employs attorneys, professional support staff, law clerks, and student staff. We also offer opportunities for a semester-long legal assistant internship to undergraduate students at UMass Amherst.
