Student Legal Services

Student Legal Services (SLS) is a student-run and student staffed organization.  We provide free legal information to all William & Mary students, faculty, and staff. Students from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law volunteer to work one-hour shifts during the office's operating hours to assist clients.

If you have a legal question, you may call the office for an appointment or simply walk in. A volunteer will take your information and help you to the best of his or her ability.

The SLS office is located in Room 316 of Blow Hall. The office is open from Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. Our telephone number is 221-3304 and the email address is 


Please note, SLS volunteers are law students, not lawyers, and are thus forbidden from giving you legal advice. It is up to you to pursue the problem on your own. However, the information our volunteers provide may save valuable time. Additionally, SLS volunteers can direct you toward information on how to seek a qualified attorney and other sources of free legal representation.

SLS volunteers abide by a strict confidentiality policy, but please note that we may have to reveal information in the case of an emergency.
