Legal Information Clinic

The Legal Information Clinic is a service created by the CSU in 2007 to offer legal information and referrals to Concordia undergraduate students. You can make an appointment to speak with a volunteer by e-mailing legalclinic@csu.qc.ca, or by calling 514-848-7474 ext. 7375.

Hours of Operation: Mon to Fri: 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., Sat and Sun: Closed Loyola Campus Hours: Mon 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. (No drop-ins; by appointment only)
Office: H-729 Office: CC-426
Tel: (514) 848-7474 ext 7375 (closed during the summer semester)
Email: legalclinic@csu.qc.ca Email: legalclinic@csu.qc.ca

We are a free service that provides legal information, referrals, and accompaniment in both French and English to undergraduate students, CSU Clubs, and other associations. Volunteer law students are available to assist with legal information and research, but only lawyers are able to represent someone in court, prepare court documents on their behalf, or advise them on their best legal options. The Legal Information Clinic works to provide students with resources that will assist them in receiving the fairest possible treatment under the law.

The Legal Information Clinic is only able to offer services to undergraduate students at this time. However, graduate students can seek help from the Graduate Students Association. Please contact the Advocacy Manager at advocacy@gsaconcordia.ca, by phone at (514) 848-2424 ext. 7900, or visit them at 2030 Mackay Street.

If your question relates to housing or employment issues, contact the CSU Off-Campus Housing and Job Bank at (514) 848-7474 ext. 7935.
