Student Legal Assistance (SLA)

Director: Maureen Mallett

Run by law students, Student Legal Assistance (SLA) is a registered charity that delivers a range of free legal assistance and representation to undergraduate students at the University of Calgary, as well as those in the Calgary area who are unable to afford a lawyer. SLA operates a legal clinic on the University campus four evenings per week during the school year, and on a full-time basis throughout the summer months.

Graduate students may be eligible for services of the SLA if they meet the SLA financial guidelines. A one-time nominal dispersement charge applies. (Undergraduate students are exempt from this charge.)

SLA can assist in most matters at the Provincial Court of Alberta, as well as some Administrative Tribunals. Most common areas SLA assists with include:

Student Appeals (Academic and Non-Academic)
Landlord Tenant Issues
Employer Disputes
Traffic Violations
Bylaw Infractions
Criminal Law
Contract Issues
Family Matters
