Student Survivor Legal Services

A Free and Confidential Resource for UO Students Who Have Experienced Sexual Assault, Dating/Domestic Violence, or Stalking.

We Are Here to Help

Students can meet with a licensed attorney to discuss various legal options and receive guidance on managing practical problems.

Services

A licensed attorney is available to advise and represent survivors in a variety of areas, including:

Civil Protective Orders (Restraining Orders)
The Court can issue an order that prevents the person who hurt you from having any type of contact with you, our attorney can represent you during that process.

Student Conduct Code Process
If you choose to report to the University you are entitled to an attorney who can help you understand the process and advocate for what you want.

Victim Rights in the Criminal Justice System
If you have been the victim of a crime our attorney can explain the legal process and help you assert your rights.

Housing and Employment
There are laws that can assist a survivor in ending a lease or removing the person who hurt you from the lease. Oregon law also protects workers who are victims of domestic violence, harassment, stalking, and sexual assault.

It can be challenging to figure out if your situation involves sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and/or stalking and to determine how legal services can be helpful to you.

You don’t have to figure it out alone.
Free Legal Help is available!
