Student Resources

The Office of General Counsel represents students only in matters that are directly related to their status as students. Take a few moments to look at the resources we have posted for you. The resources here are for informational purposes only. If you need a lawyer, it is best to retain private counsel.

If you feel that you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment because you are a student, please refer to the AU’s Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment Policy for guidance.
