What is Student Legal Services?
Our primary goal is to assist students in responding to legal problems that may be adversely affecting their well-being or otherwise interfering with their academic studies or goals. We particularly strive to assist students in resolving problems for which it would otherwise be difficult or impossible to obtain legal services at affordable prices. Assistance with legal problems is an essential service for students because legal problems can jeopardize a student's academic performance, development, and ultimately, the student's retention at WKU. WKU SLS assists in alleviating these problems in order to maximize the quality of student life and helps Western Kentucky University to accomplish its goal of student retention and enhancing the quality of student's University experience.
The mission of Western Kentucky University Student Legal Services (WKU SLS) is to provide Western Kentucky University students with affordable access to legal services.
Within Tate Page Hall, Student Legal Services is located in room 252. Our office includes an office for the clinic supervisor, a reception area for interns, a records room and two consultation rooms. In addition to this area, a small lobby is available for clients to wait for their consultation.
Any student, full time or part time, is eligible to the services provided through Student Legal Services. If the issue is an ongoing legal problem, the student must initiate contact with the SLS Clinic during a time in which they are currently enrolled as a student.
