Free legal consultations October 20
Date Posted: October 3, 2016
The Students Association has partnered with local law firms to help improve access to justice for those in the RDC community. Individuals will be able to book appointments through our office for brief legal consultations with individuals in the legal profession.
Students will be able to ask questions and obtain guidance on legal topics such as housing, employment, family, or civil law so that they can take a more informed approach to their own legal issues.

They will also be required to sign a disclaimer regarding the service on the day of their appointment. Bookings and documentation must be submitted by 12 p.m. Wednesday, October 19.
