Student Legal Information Centre (SLIC)
What is the Student Legal Information Centre?
The Student Legal Information Centre (SLIC) provides free and confidential legal information to all UNB undergraduate students.
Who may use SLIC services?
Part-time UNB undergraduate students that have paid their SU fees and all full-time undergraduate students are entitled to one hour of professional legal advice from the Student Union lawyer.
What services are provided at the SLIC?
The SLIC office assists with appeals procedures of the Student Standings and Promotions Committee (SS&P), the Student Disciplinary Committee and the Residence Disciplinary Committee. The Centre also provides general legal information and can help students cope with a variety of problems and situations, such as Landlord & Tenant disputes and Small Claims disputes.
Is there a lawyer readily available at the SLIC office?
The first point of contact for UNB students seeking legal advice are the well-qualified law student volunteers. Although they are not allowed to dispense specific legal advice, they can give general information on common issues and provide helpful referrals to other services. When necessary, they will collect and summarize the legally pertinent facts to be forwarded to the SU lawyer who will provide legal advice.
Is an appointment required to meet with SLIC volunteers?
Students with legal issues may drop into the SLIC office located in Room 122 of the Student Union Building during officer hours Monday, Wednesday and Thursday between 10am-3pm or may make an appointment by e-mailing SLIC@unb.ca.
How can I get more information on SLIC?
