Student Legal Services


The Student Legal Services Program, located in Newcomb Hall, 4th floor, room 460, makes legal counsel available to University students. The agency is headed by a full-time attorney and staffed by law students. Legal counseling focuses on cases arising outside the University, with a concentration on landlord-tenant conflicts, consumer rights, student victimization by private interests, and related legal situations arising from a student's residence in the Charlottesville- Albemarle community. The program is funded by the Student Council via your Student Activities Fee. Phone: 924-7524.

The Consumer Information Service operates an action line telephone (293-4949) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. as a community-wide service, investigating 85 percent of the consumer-merchant disputes brought to its attention. Its office is located in Madison House at 170 Rugby Road.
