Re: Announcing Off-Campus Housing Legal Consultation Services


Hello Slugs.

The Student Union Assembly (SUA), in partnership with the Dean of Students and the UC and UCSC Offices of Campus Counsel, is excited to announce the launch of a new program that will provide UCSC students with access to free legal consultation services related to off-campus, non-UCSC housing issues. This important resource for students can help you navigate your off-campus housing experience should any legal related issues arise.

How it works                      

If you live off campus and need help understanding your lease agreement or are experiencing a dispute with a landlord, Off-Campus Legal Consultation Services is available to you through McManis Law. When you contact McManis Law you will be guided through an intake process, and then a meeting will be scheduled with an attorney. At the meeting the attorney will speak with you about the issues that you are experiencing, provide consultation about your legal rights and obligations, and provide guidance on potential next steps. These services are free of charge. Students may receive two consultations for a given legal issue.

Contact Information: Call 408-918-2091 for a consultation.
