Student Legal Services

Student Legal Services is one of the services offered by the ASOSU for the OSU students of the Corvallis campus.  Legal Services are provided to OSU students through Access the Law, and paid for through the Corvallis campus student incidental fees. Our office provides legal advice and representation to OSU students when they have a dispute that does not pertain to the University.

We are here to assist you with a range of legal matters. Please take a look at Areas of Dispute listed below. If you are a Corvallis campus OSU student and have a matter that falls within the range of issues which the legal services office covers, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

ASOSU Student Legal Services COVID-19 Updates:

Due to current concerns regarding COVID-19 at Oregon State University, the ASOSU office of Student Legal Services has transitioned to a fully remote model in respect of social distancing practices. If a legal matter requires in person services (execution of Wills, notary services, or other), our office will provide accommodations when possible.

If you need to schedule an appointment, please contact us at: (541) 737-4165 or


If you have documents that the attorney needs to review (e.g. your lease agreement, your court summons and citation, e-mails, etc.) Please e-mail copies to:

If possible, please send documents as PDFs.

If you are having difficulty sending your documents electronically, please call or e-mail and we will provide guidance.


We will be making our best efforts to maintain our normal office hours of 8:00-5:00, Monday through Friday. However, we understand the complexities that will be created through remote education and will be responsive to students’ needs. We will follow up with any student within 24 hours of being contacted.

Areas of Dispute

ASOSU Student Legal Services provides legal advice and representation to OSU students when the other party to the dispute is not also an OSU student or a part of the university or one of its administrative units.  Advising which may consist of consultation and, in limited circumstance, representation is provided in the following areas.

  • Immigration
  • Landlord/tenant disputes
  • Personal Injury
  • Credit issues including debtor/creditor matters and collections, and bankruptcy
  • Consumer problems
  • Traffic infractions
  • Criminal charges
  • Wills & Power of Attorney
  • Uncontested child custody and uncontested dissolution of marriage cases, including child support determinations
  • And various miscellaneous matters including employment, and probate, name changes, disability benefits and social security, veterans benefits, and unemployment benefits

If your issue is not listed here and the other party is part of the university or one of its administrative units, please contact the Office of Legal Advocacy


Conflict of Interests

The service of this office is provided by ASOSU and supported by student fees. Consequently, we have the potential to represent any OSU student. For this reason, we are only able to serve one student in an issue in which the opposing party is another student. Doing otherwise would constitute a conflict of interest for the office. This is performed on a first come first serve basis.


How To Make an Appointment

To make an appointment, call us at (541) 737-4165.

Please specify what your legal matter pertains to and that you wish to schedule an appointment with an attorney. We strongly encourage you to make the appointment as early as possible. Occasionally, we might have to ask you to wait for more than a week because of scheduling, so please allow some time.


Cost and Fees

Because the office is supported by student fees, our services are free of charge to OSU students. However, any costs incurred outside the office such as filing fees, service fees and extraordinary postage and copies are the student's responsibility.



ASOSU Student Legal Services office strictly upholds client confidentiality.  This is a law office; anything said in the office does not leave the office. Your confidence and comfort is of the utmost importance to us.
