Welcome to the Undergraduate Student Legal Aid Office

If you are a graduate student, please visit Graduate Legal Aid or email glao@umd.edu to make an appointment.

If you are an undergraduate student, you can make an appointment for one of two services:

If you've been referred to the Office of Student Conduct or the Office of Rights and Responsibilities for an academic integrity violation (such as cheating or plagiarism), a student conduct violation (such as underage consumption of alcohol or possession of illegal drugs), or any violations that occurred in University housing, that would be a University charge. You’ll want to speak with a Student Advocate to help you through the process. Click the University Charge Assistance icon.

If you're having trouble with an issue pertaining to state or federal law (such as a landlord-tenant housing issue, traffic violation, or more), you'll want to speak to an attorney. Click the Legal Advice icon.

If you’re unsure whether you should speak with a student advocate or attorney, we can help you figure it out! Just email slao@umd.edu.

DACA students can also set up an appointment with an immigration attorney by clicking the flyer below:
