For more than twenty years, members of the university community with legal problems or queries have had access to free legal help and referral. Legal Services has an attorney on staff and although he cannot represent students in court, he can provide guidance on nearly any legal problem.
The Director of Legal Services may not give legal advice. Only the licensed attorney may give legal advice. ASUN Legal Services is limited to activities of an informational nature only, and any request exceeding this limitation will be referred to appropriate legal counsel.
In most cases, the results of this process are a better understanding of the legal problem, some preliminary legal advice, and a referral to a local attorney who handles cases in the necessary legal area. Whenever possible, referrals are made to attorneys who have agreed to offer reduced and/or waived fees to Nevada students who are referred by ASUN Legal Services.
The Office of Student Advocacy was established to facilitate open and honest communication between students and the University by providing free and confidential peer support, advice and assistance to individuals involved in disputes with the University of Nevada, Reno.
ASUN Legal Services is a strictly confidential service, and under no circumstance will your name or the nature of your case be released.
For more information on any of the services, please contact the ASUN Legal Services Director. You may also call (775) 784-6132.
Legal Services holds office hours between 8:30 am and 5 pm and appointments with the Legal Services Attorney are conducted Friday’s. Please call ahead or email the office to schedule an appointment as the employees are sometimes in class or meetings throughout the day. We are located in the 3rd floor of Joe Crowley Student Union.
