At this time the Student Legal Services Office is unable to offer full-service representation and is limited to providing legal advice in matters related to landlord-tenant, employment, consumer, and higher education and referrals/resources in matters related to criminal, immigration, family/estate planning, personal injury, and university discipline.
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.
The SLSO employs attorneys, professional support staff, law clerks, and student staff. We also offer semester-long legal assistant internships for UMass Amherst undergraduates.
