Small Claims

Student Legal Services assists students with small claims matters provided the opposing party is not also a P.S.U. student. We can meet with you to discuss your small claims matter during our drop-in hours, which are posted on our drop-ins web page.

Some common types of assistance on small claims matters include:

  1. Identifying the legal basis of any claims and the amounts to be claimed.
  2. Explaining the small claims process and how to file a claim or respond to a claim against you.
  3. Facilitating settlement of the claim prior to trial, including preparing students for mediation and helping draft demand letters.
  4. Preparing students for the day of court by giving feedback on arguments and conducting practice presentations.
