November 14, 2009

INDIANAPOLIS - David Nguyen is the Chairperson of the IUPUI Student Legal Services Establishment Committee - a committee comprised of IUPUI students, staff, and alumni exploring options to establish a legal office for students on campus.

Because students are considered to be indigent voluntarily, they do not quality for pro bono legal services from area legal service organizations. In addition, many students who do work, work to pay for their tuition and school costs. A campus resource to provide no-cost legal representation and advice to students would be an invaluable resource allowing students to concentrate on their education and academic life.

The Committee will inform students, faculty, and staff about the proposed establishment of the office. It will explore a variety of options for the implementation of the office and work with campus administration and student government to determine a feasible option for both the students and the campus.
