Legal Assistance for Students

Student Legal Services (SLS) provides free legal advice and low-cost representation to currently registered University of Iowa students. SLS is staffed by two full-time attorneys, an office manager, and legal interns from the University of Iowa College of Law. Services are confidential.

SLS advises students on a variety of legal matters including, but not limited to, landlord-tenant disputes, criminal charges, immigration, small claims, and dissolution of marriage.

SLS is unable to advise students on business formation, money-making ventures, and in matters where two students are in conflict, but can provide referrals.

The SLS office is located in the Iowa Memorial Union and is open year-round. For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit https://legal.studentlife.uiowa.edu/ or call (319) 335-3276.
