Student Legal Services (SLS) was established by the Student Government Association at East Carolina University as a service to provide for students. SLS is registered with the North Carolina State Bar as a pre-paid legal services plan. It is funded through student fees and services are available for fee paying students. NOTE! Registration with the NC State Bar does not equate to approval by the State Bar.
ECU-SLS is an advisory service. We do not represent students in court on legal matters. We will work with you to determine whether you need representation by a lawyer which will, however, always remain the decision of the student-client.
ECU-SLS is not affiliated with the University Attorney’s office and does not provide advice concerning University related matters, against the university or against another student. The legal services provided through ECU-SLS are not offered by or on behalf of East Carolina University or the Student Government Association but instead are provided through the ECU Student Legal Services plan by the attorney directly to the individual receiving the services and so the attorney client privilege and confidentiality are assured.
