I Didn’t Know That: Free Legal Assistance


You may never need legal advice while you’re at Boise State, but it’s good to know there’s help if you do. Thanks to funding from Associated Students of Boise State University (ASBSU), you can consult with an attorney for free if you are a full-fee/activity-fee-paying student.

Local private attorneys are available from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on most Mondays and Thursdays throughout the semester, and summer hours vary. To find more information and schedule an appointment, view the Legal Assistance resources provided by the Office of the Dean of Students.

Attorney consultations are remote for now. Once you schedule your appointment, the attorney will call you at your scheduled time.

Out of the 17 eligible topics, the four most common issues, from greatest to least, are:

  • Landlord/Tenant Problems
  • Divorce/Family Law
  • Wills
  • Child Custody/Child Support

If you’re not currently enrolled, you can still find low-cost-to-free legal help through the Idaho Court Assistance Office & Self-Help Center or by calling the Idaho Law Referral Service at (208) 334-4500.
