Student Legal Center

Do you have any lingering legal troubles that may interfere with your educational process? If so, there is help available!

The Student Legal Center has an attorney available for you to speak with confidentially.  You can ask her questions about your landlord, a citation you received, a case you want to expunge, your employment, immigration, family law, etc.  Drop in consultations are welcome, but appointments are preferred.  Please call  805-730-4062 or email alcollins@pipeline.sbcc.edu to schedule a time to meet.  You will feel a lot better after you speak with the lawyer and unload some of the burden you may carry from an unresolved legal issue. 

Does it cost anything?

Students must purchase an Activity Sticker for $10 ($5.00 if purchased during Spring Semester) at the Cashiers Window located in the Student Service building SS150.
