Our Mission

Our History

  • SLS helps CSU students resolve their legal issues with as little disruption as possible to their educational endeavors. SLS focuses on educating students on the law and enabling them to help themselves resolve legal issues.
  • Colorado State University Student Legal Services is proud to be one of the oldest SLS offices in the country! We were created as a service of student government in 1971 to provide advice to CSU students on a broad range of issues. In 1978, a student referendum made the office independent of student government and funded by general student fees. We’ve been funded that way ever since, allowing us to provide most of our services free of charge to students. Over four decades and tens of thousands of students helped, we are going as strong as ever!
