Student Legal Services

Our Services

SLS is staffed by three experienced attorneys who will provide legal advice or court representation in civil and criminal areas of the law. Many times a student's legal question can be handled by consultation; other cases may require negotiations and court appearances.


SLS attorneys will represent UNL students only in Lancaster County courts in the following types of cases:

  • Consumer cases
  • Criminal misdemeanors (e.g., MIP, DUI, Maintain a Disorderly House, etc.)
  • Divorces (uncontested; not involving children or real property)
  • Landlord & tenant disputes
  • Small Claims Court appeals & removals

SLS attorneys will meet with UNL students to discuss legal options and offer advice or referrals on any legal matter. SLS will not appear in court for students outside of Lancaster County nor in cases such as bankruptcies, contested divorces, felonies, personal injury lawsuits, automobile accidents or real estate transactions.
