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 Walk-in Notary Services Monday-Friday 9:30 am - 4:30 pm.

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.
