ELIGIBILITY FOR THE PROGRAM
All registered UT students who have paid the Student Legal Services fee are eligible for services.
Students are automatically assessed the $10.00 fee when they register for classes each semester. To maintain your eligibility for our services do not waive the legal services fee. Students have until the last day to add/drop classes for each semester to verify that the legal services fee is on their account. For the basic fee of $10.00 per semester, eligible students are entitled to open three (3) files each semester. Additional fees will be assessed for the fourth and any successive cases opened each semester.
Students may elect not to pay the fee and therefore waive their right to participate in the program. Students who do not pay the fee are not eligible for services.
Upon graduation, students with pending cases opened prior to their graduation will continue to receive services on that legal matter for a period of no more than six (6) months after graduation from the University.
The following persons are not eligible for services from Student Legal Services:
- Students who have not paid their Student Legal Services fee
- Spouses and dependents of eligible students
- Friends of eligible students
- Non-enrolled faculty or staff of the University
- Student and/or Community organizations
