Legal Resources for Students
If you ever need any legal assistance, check out these legal resources available for students:
- Your school's Ombudsman Office
The ombudsman office handles university complaints by students, staff, and faculty.
The office often serves as a liaison between the two conflicting parties and tries to resolve any
conflict through mediation.
- Your school's Law Library
Universities have some of the largest collection of books and resources available. Law libraries
have huge amounts of legal resources. The trick is to know what you're looking for. Usually a librarian can assist you in finding any information you need.
- Library of Congress
The law library of congress website contains huge amounts of information as well as links to related sites.
- Law clubs
Usually your school's law club can provide some basic legal assistance to fellow students

Great if you are on the run or just need some general questions answered.
