Does Your SG Need Legal Help?

All ASGA members get access to "pro-bono" legal advice from veteran attorneys who are adept in SG-related and higher education-related cases, such as:

  • Can our administration shut down SG at any time and for any reason?
  • Does our SG have the right to zero-fund the college newspaper if we don't agree with the articles it's printing?
  • One of the SG senators slandered me in publicshould I sue her?
  • The college newspaper badmouthed me in printcan I sue them for libel?
  • Can we set spending limits in campus elections?
  • We want to impeach the senate presidentshould we?

Members may schedule short phone or e-mail consultations with these legal professionals.

If you need more help than the free consultation will provide, you can get ASGA member-only discounts on the attorney's normal fees.



What Is Co-Star?

We've partnered with CO-STAR (Coalition for Student & Academic Rights) to provide legal counsel. The only organization of its kind, CO-STAR provides advice and advocacy to students and student groups about their academic and constitutional rights on campus.

Each year, CO-STAR receives more than 10,000 requests for help. With the aid of a national network of volunteer attorneys, students are given cogent and understandable facts about the law as it affects them. CO-STAR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
