Why College Students Need Lawyers: What Lawyers Need to Know

Colleges and Universities are quickly recognizing the value of providing legal assistance, representation, guidance and advice for their students. The typical college student is often thought to be an 18-24 year old.  However, data indicates that there are increasingly more non-traditional students attending college, coming from all sorts of backgrounds and professional experience. The number of international students, as well as students with disabilities and/or pre-existing mental health concerns is also on the rise.  In addition, today’s students have legal concerns such as matrimonial, tax, landlord/tenant, and contract issues as well as, criminal and quasi-criminal matters.

Being cognizant of the diversity of the college student population, the wide variety of legal issues they face and the impact these issues have on their academic development is critical to attorneys providing legal assistance to this population.

The often complicated interconnectedness of students’ legal matters and their other issues of concern can set off a chain reaction that can seriously impede, or even shut down, their academic progress and student development.

This presentation will illustrate the snowball effect of issues that often culminate in, or stem from students’ legal problems or concerns, and provide attorneys with the tools necessary to become aware of the types of legal issues prevalent amongst college students and how to best provide them with legal assistance.

This program has been approved by the BCLE of the Supreme Court of NJ for 1.0 hour of total CLE credit. (Please note that Approved CLE Courses in NJ are Recognized for CLE Credit in NY.)

Cost: Free (includes lunch)
