How To Apply

The Fall 2017 application for all Student-Initiated Legal Services Projects (SLPS) is now closed. The Spring 2018 application will be available in late December and due January 11, 2018.

Required Liability Waiver

UC Berkeley requires that students sign a liability waiver for all off-campus activity that is not required by a class. This includes SLPS.  All SLPS participants must sign a waiver and email it to by September 15, 2017. Students who do not sign and submit a waiver by September 15 will not be able to participate in SLPS. You can download the waiver form here. You can use a free scanner app, like Scanner Pro, on your phone to scan your form.

Informational Materials

  • A description of the different projects, estimated time commitments, and contact information is available here.
  • The very helpful SLPS Roadmap–a guide to SLPS organized by categories such as area of law and estimated time commitment–is available here. Many SLPS require a significant time commitment. Please consider this in selecting your extracurricular activities.
