Campus Legal Services
The USSU in partnership with Campus Legal Services provides office space and funding in order to help offer students this valuable service.
Campus Legal Services (CLS) is a developing centre at the University of Saskatchewan where students can find student advocacy resources and help. CLS is a law student run organization established to provide University of Saskatchewan students with free legal information and advocacy. CLS provides academic and non-academic support for a variety of issues like appeals, residential disputes and student legal aid. The scope of services include information, assistance and representation (if required) for the select following: academic misconduct and appeals, non-criminal non-academic misconduct, landlord and tenant disputes, small claims courts under $10,000, automobile accident insurance appeals, student loan issues and traffic and bylaw infractions.
Campus Legal Services (CLS) is happy to announce it is now operational at the University of Saskatchewan. This is a student run, volunteer clinic where law students, under the supervision of a lawyer, can assist students with certain academic and legal issues. CLS focuses on academic appeals and landlord/tenant matters, but at the discretion of the faculty supervisor, may take on:
· Traffic Safety Court matters
· Small claims actions
· Small claims actions for SGI automobile insurance deductible
· Non-complex Human Rights complaints (at discretion of faculty supervisor)
· Debtor-creditor (limited to assisting students dealing with collections agents)
· Automobile Accident Insurance Act appeals
If you are a U of S student and you have a problem relating to the above, please come see us. We are located in the Arts Tunnel, (in the Safewalk office).
Campus Legal Services is closed May 1 to September 6.
