Legal Services Program

About

SSA is in the final stages of launching a Legal Services Program with launch expected in Fall 2021. This program will offer assistance to students in issues relating to legal processes and offer advice to students seeking it.

Governance

SSA's Legal Services program is ultimately administered by the University Student Senate, and further guided by two additional groups.

Legal Services Commission

The Legal Services Commission oversees the implementation of the SSA Legal Services Plan, carries out duties associated with it, and amends it as needed. The Legal Services Commission is chaired by the SSA Vice President or a designee.

Legal Services Commission Advisory Group

The Legal Services Commission Advisory Group reviews and evaluates the SSA Legal Services Plan, and recommends improvements as needed. The Legal Services Commission Advisory Group is chaired by the SSA President or a designee. Legal Services Commission Advisory Group membership is closed to those who currently serve on or previously served on the SSA Legal Services Commission.
