About SLS


Are you dealing with a landlord that won’t fix something in your rental, or have you gotten pulled over for going 20 miles over the speed limit? Or maybe you’ve run into someone not honoring their end of a contract. We are here to help! Our consultations are free and we can advise or represent students on a variety of legal issues, including housing, criminal, traffic, and consumer, among other matters.

The Student Legal Services was established in 1972 and has since been providing low-cost, confidential legal assistance to University of Virginia students, both in and outside of the courtroom.
