Student Legal Services


The mission of Student Legal Services at West Virginia University is to provide counseling, advice, education, and representation to students to assist them to resolve legal issues and to foster and support students’ learning development. SLS is committed to protecting the legal rights and interests of the student body by providing high quality legal and mediation services at no cost to both undergraduate and graduate students, individually and collectively, as well as student government and student organizations.

SLS is available to educate students about their legal rights, responsibilities, and obligations. We provide services to all students with legal issues including, but not limited to, the following areas of law: leases, contracts, landlord/tenant issues, consumer issues, notary services, insurance matters, wills and powers of attorney, debt collection, expungement of criminal records, employment grievances, family law and domestic matters, and general civil matters.

In most cases, it is necessary to make an appointment. Students are encouraged to contact our office as soon as a legal issue arises in order to receive timely assistance. To schedule an appointment, contact Student Legal Services today at 304-293-4897. During the Spring and Fall semesters, we can accommodate walk-ins on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:45 to 7 PM in our office, located in G-5 Elizabeth Moore Hall.
