Legal Resources

Should you find that you are in need of legal assistance, legal services and/or legal resources, please refer to this Cook County, IL website.

The Northwestern Student Legal Services Office also provides an attorney to full-time graduate students on both campuses. All currently enrolled, full-time students in The Graduate School and Kellogg MBA students are eligible to receive legal consultation if they have paid the activity fee.

The City of Evanston hosts a website for Landlord and Tenant Resources as well as consultation, guidance, mediation, and additional legal resources.

On that page, you will find links to the Metropolitan Tenants Organization (MTO) and the Law Center for Better Housing (LCBH). Evanston has contracted with those organization to provide residents with assistance for resolving landlord/tenant issues. Additionally, MTO partners with LCBH for legal consultation services when needed. If you have any questions or would like more information about security deposits, repairs, eviction, breaking your lease, or to discuss your rights, please contact them at the information provided.
