Student Legal Services

Legal Services


Legal Services is a student benefit funded by the Student Activity Fee. Legal aid and advice is available to all students who take lecture classes for credit on Lane's main campus. During an eligibility check, the student's records are reviewed to verify that they have paid the mandatory student activity fee at the time of the request. Students who take online-only courses, ABSE classes, noncredit classes, or courses at satellite campuses are not eligible for this service.
