Our Mission

Help when you need it the most.

Student Legal Services at The Ohio State University supports student success by affordably serving the holistic legal needs of OSU students through its 4 pillars of professional counsel: Advice, Representation, Education, and Resources.



If a legal problem threatens to interfere with your effectiveness as a student, SLS may aid in resolving or minimizing that legal complication. 

Our goal is to provide prompt, efficient, and high-quality legal assistance to you. Proper attention to any legal matter, even if you may not believe it is serious, will often prevent more complex legal difficulties.
