Legal Support

Should you need legal help, there are various resources available for students.

CCS’ legal programs provide quality legal services to hundreds of survivors of interpersonal violence. Services include walk-in clinics, by-appointment office consultations, and direct representation.

CCS’ legal programs take a holistic, client-centered approach to assisting survivors. Services are designed to empower clients with information and options to stabilize their lives, allowing them to pursue self-defined goals instead of reacting to crisis.

CCS legal services are free and confidential.
