The GSO offers a legal clinic for graduate students in need of legal information.
In 2017, the Graduate Student’s Organization is taking a proactive effort to highlight and promote a student service program called the Legal Clinic. The Legal Clinic addresses potential legal issues that may arise in the day-to-day lives of graduate students.
The Graduate Student’s Organization has partnered with Attorney Phil Solages to meet the needs of the graduate school community. Attorney Solages is a former prosecutor with over sixteen years of legal experience. Further, Attorney Solages has proudly served the Stony Brook University community for over a decade.
By making an appointment with the Graduate Student’s Organization, students will have the opportunity to meet directly with Attorney Solages. All consultations are confidential and occur in a private setting on campus. Generally, consultations are by appointment only. However, walk-ins are accommodated on a case-by-case basis.
