Procedures

We value your safety and your health, and have made changes to our procedures in order to provide you with the same quality legal services in the safest way possible.
 

Virtual Consultations

To maintain social distancing guidelines as recommended by both the CDC and UNT, for student and staff safety, SLS consultations are being held via phone or Zoom.

If you have any questions about our virtual format or need any accommodations, please contact us at 940-565-2614 or studentlegal@unt.edu

Digital Paperwork

All of our intake forms are available as a digital PDF form, allowing students to complete and return all paperwork digitally for your connivance.

If you have trouble accessing or completing the paperwork electronically, or need assistance, please contact us at 940-565-2614 or Studentlegal@unt.edu.

Masks & Sanitation

Masks are required on campus, and are required when visiting us in Union 411. Our staff regularly sanitizes commonly touched spaces and items, including pens, clipboards, door handles, and desk surfaces.
