How to Get Involved
Student Legal services is always looking for students who want to get involved and are interested in learning more about the law and legal careers.
We have many ways to get involved! You can join our Advisory Board, become an Intern or just plain Volunteer!
Our Advisory Board was created to promote involvement, cooperation and accountability in SLS. Its duties are to advise SLS; review SLS’s mission, operating policies, programming, resource allocation, staffing, and budget requests; provide guidance to SLS on these issues. The board also facilitates the gathering of feedback from the student body to ensure greater accuracy and accountability of SLS programming and services. The SLS Advisory Board serves only to offer recommendations and is not a governing (decision-making) board.
Our Internship program was designed to help students interested in a career in the legal field gain real world expereince. We work mostly with students majoring in Criminology/Criminal Justice and Political Science but welcome all interested students.
Our Explore the Law program was designed to help students from underrepresented background prepare for and pursue careers in law through partnerships between Portland State University Student Legal Service and Diversity and Multicultural Student Services, the Multnomah Bar Association and the Oregon State Bar.
