Client Eligibility: Legal Services for Students

Policy
Purpose: 

Inform public on who is eligible to utilize the services.

Applies to: 

Students on the Lawrence campus

Campus: 
Lawrence
Policy Statement: 

Students who are currently enrolled at the University of Kansas Lawrence campus, and have paid required campus fees, may receive any of our services at no additional charge. Students are not required to use Legal Services for Students regarding any legal matter.

Please call Legal Services for Students at 864-5665 or stop by our office on the third floor of the Burge Union to set up an appointment.

LEGAL ADVICE IS NOT PROVIDED OVER THE TELEPHONE OR VIA EMAIL.

Exclusions or Special Circumstances: 

Students at the Edwards campus in Overland Park and students at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City are not eligible for our legal services because they do not pay the Legal Services for Students campus required fees. However, due to special IRS grant funding, we are able to assist international students, faculty and staff at all of the KU campuses (Edwards, KU Medical Center, Lawrence and Wichita) for international tax advising.
