Eligibility

You must be a degree-seeking Ohio State student attending the Columbus campus to be eligible for services. Services are only available during the academic year in which the participation fee has been paid.

If a student loses his/her eligibility for any reason while being represented by SLS in a pending court proceeding, SLS may withdraw representation at the earliest opportunity. Legal services will not be provided if the student becomes an unenrolled student pursuant to Ohio State guidelines, even if student paid the fee for that academic year.

Legal services are not available to faculty, staff, administrators, parents, spouses, dependents, friends, or partners of eligible students who are not otherwise eligible and have not paid the SLS fee. Students’ primary role with Ohio State must be as a student, not an employee, to be eligible for services.

No campus organization, student business, student club, fraternity, sorority or other such entity shall be advised or represented by the legal service SLS, but these programs can use the educational outreach services offered by SLS.
