WKU Student Legal Services
As a cooperative effort among Potter College of Arts and Letters, the Department of Political Science, and the Professional Legal Studies Program, Western Kentucky University Student Legal Services (WKU SLS) opened its doors in January, 2015, to provide on campus legal services for all WKU Students. In addition, WKU SLS will develop and implement programming to educate WKU students on the law to help avoid legal problems in the future.
It is the mission of Western Kentucky Student Legal Services (WKU SLS) to improve student academic performance and quality of student life by educating students on their legal rights and responsibilities and making legal services easy to access, easy to understand, and easy to afford.
