CHIRLA Representative of the Day:
CHIRLA Student Legal Services is launching a new service with our partner schools called CHIRLA Representative of the Day. If students, faculty, and staff would like general information, clarifications, case updates, or resources, students may log into the zoom link and have these matters answered by an attorney or a CHIRLA accredited representative. Students, faculty, and staff can also refer their immediate family members (parents, siblings, and spouses), friends and neighbors to log into the zoom link for quick consultations. This service will be available to all students every Friday from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Please join their virtual counter:
