General legal matters – UTS Student Legal Service
All students currently enrolled at UTS and UTS Insearch have access to free legal advice through the UTS Student Legal Service. The service is provided by the UTS Student’s Association. The legal service is run by a solicitor who is assisted by two trainee lawyers. All legal advice is provided by the solicitor and all matters are dealt with in strict confidence.
What you can get help with
Legal advice is provided on a range of matters including tenancy, employment, traffic and criminal offences, civil matters, consumer claims, debts, family issues, business, and many other areas. The Student Legal Service can also certify documents as true copies, and witness statutory declarations and other formal documents.
