Occasionally students will be in need of legal advice, which can be not only daunting but also costly. Eau Claire attorney Harry Hertel comes to campus once a week to help students. This program can help students with a very broad range of common student legal needs including traffic issues, small claims, personal injury, landlord disputes, alcohol issues and employer/employee disputes.
A $10.00 first-time fee is charged, with a $5.00 fee for each follow-up appointment concerning the same subject matter. To schedule an appointment stop by the Student Senate Office (220 Davies Center), call 715-836-4646 or e-mail email@example.com. Appointments are scheduled from 4:30 - 8 p.m.
Fall 2023 Legal Services Dates:
September 5, 19, 25
November 7, 14, 21, 28
December 5, 12
Local, state and national elections: Voting information
Student Senate is a staunch proponent of getting out the vote among Blugold students--your voice matters and now is the time to build those civic engagement skills and interests.
Whether you're registering to vote at your Eau Claire address or signing up to receive an absentee ballot to vote in your home district, Wisconsin voters must provide proof of residence that includes a picture ID- students can do this by using a valid Wisconsin Driver's License or UWEC voter ID, which can be picked up in the Blugold Card Office in Davies Center, and a tuition fee receipt; students can also generate a proof of residence form in MyCampS.
Visit the University Centers website for more specifics on Wisconsin voting laws and registration information.
