Legal Resource

Promotes awareness and knowledge on all areas of law.

Our mission is to educate the SF State community on their legal rights, helping empower them when confronted with stressful legal issues. Our on-site attorney is well versed in California law and meets with students and staff for low-fee consultations.

The expected outcomes for students who seek counseling from the Legal Resource Center: Straightforward answers to basic legal questions, no advice just information, referrals to pro-bono/ low fee Bay Area legal aid, an opportunity to meet with an expert attorney for $10.00, a full legal library and informative legal brochures and pamphlets, and a kind, supportive staff of students who research client’s issues.


What services does the Legal Resource Center provide?

The A.S. Legal Resource Center (LRC) is an on-campus referral agency dedicated to developing and organizing legal resources and information for the SF State community. While the LRC does not provide legal advice, we do educate and empower students by providing them with current and accurate information regarding their rights when confronted with legal troubles ranging from landlord/tenant issues to credit problems to traffic infractions.

What areas of Law can we help with?

We can assist with almost all of areas of California Law, except for Criminal Law (Referrals for a Criminal Law attorney are available).
