A Friendly Reminder…Student Legal Services (SLS) is at UIC!<br /><br />So if you have a legal issue <br />(landlord-tenant, divorce, child custody/support, traffic, bankruptcy, expungement, etc.) <br />just call 312-996-9214 to make your appointment...<br />We also have a Notary Service for UIC Students<br />NOTE: Must be a current UIC Student who has paid activities fee, must make appointment for service.<br />Services include consultation, referral, document preparation, and court representation (in some instances)<br />Legal matters are confidential and subject to attorney-client privilege; <br />they are NOT shared with the University.<br />Exclusions to service: SLS does not handle legal matters in which the University, faculty, staff, or other UIC students may be an adverse party. SLS may terminate attorney-client relationship for students’ failure to cooperate in advancing their cases. <br /><br />SLS Tips:<br />Visit the SLS webpage on the new Dean of Students website: deanofstudents.uic.edu/studentlegal<br /><br />• HOUSING MATTERS: <br />We also have a few tips for students seeking housing:<br />- Never sign a lease without viewing a unit first<br />- Make an appointment with SLS to have your lease reviewed before you sign it<br />- Take pictures when you move in and out of an apartment unit<br />- Never pay cash; use checks, money orders, and internet payments for tracking<br />- Never refuse to pay entire amount for rent, no matter what the condition of the unit; come and see SLS for assistance <br />- Always get everything in writing and keep your own rental file<br />- No landlord can just put you out without a Court Order authorized by a Judge from the County where your rental unit is located<br />- Look into getting renters insurance (auto insurance companies usually offer renters and homeowners insurance)<br />These simple tips can help you avoid a lot of frustration. Additionally, we encourage you to take a look at the Chicago Renters Rights Guide for further information, click here: <br />http://lcbh.org/resource-guide<br /><br />• DRIVING in ILLINOIS:<br />- Don’t forget that having insurance to drive is the law in Illinois!<br />- Drive the posted speed limit<br />- Pull to the right of the road for emergency vehicles with sirens and/or flashing lights<br />- Never offer traffic/police officers money for tickets on the street, you must resolve traffic tickets through the manner outlined on the ticket<br />- If you are involved in an accident: pull to the side of the road, call 911 for the police; get the other driver’s name, phone number, and insurance card so that you can write down their insurance information (i.e. company, phone number, policy number)...also, get a copy of the police report…you will need this information to file a claim with your insurance company.<br />- If you are unsure about whether a traffic ticket requires you to attend court, contact SLS; if the other driver(s) in the accident received a ticket citation, you may need to attend court as well to tell your version for what happened; you may also need the court information to collect for repairs<br />-Remember that it IS legal to drive with a valid State of Illinois driver’s license or permit as well as a valid license from your home state or country. Here is the law that can be referred to which states this: 625 ILCS 5/6-102) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-102). <br />If you receive a traffic ticket for this reason, please contact SLS to discuss.<br /><br /><br /><br />Attorney Melissa L.
