Legal Aid at Maryland

The Undergraduate Student Legal Aid Office provides free assistance to currently-enrolled full-time University of Maryland undergraduate students. Funded by the Student Government Association, the Student Legal Aid Office has been assisting university students with legal questions since 1976. Legal services are categorized into two types: students with general legal questions and students seeking assistance regarding university charges. We also offer free notary services; please select "Notary" when you book the appointment.  Notary services may not be available on a walk-in basis.
