Students seeking legal assistance
this year also will be able to further their
education at no additional charge.
“We serve as a public education
function,” said Shelley Stall, director of
Student Legal Services. “We provide
advice and representation to students
who crane to us.”
Fra: 25 years, ASUN Student Legal
Services has provided free counsel to
University of Nebraska-Lincoln stu
Stall said educating students about
the legal system is one of two “expan
sions” of Student Legal Services; the
other; a new full-time attorney at law.
“We are pleased to have another
lawyer in our office,” Stall said. “He’s a
great addition to our staff”
Tom Keefe, the center’s new attor
ney, is ready to help students with a vari
ety of legal services, answers and

background both in and out of the class
room,” Keefe said. “I really like the stu
dent aspect of what I do.”
Graduating from UNL Teachers
College in 1975, Keefe taught junior
and high school students in Australia
and Palmyra before he entered the NU
College of Law in 1980. Keefe earned
his law degree in 1983.
“I always considered the option of
going into law,” Keefe said. “Working
here at UNL allows me to continue edu
cating students and provide legal coun
Before he accepted a frill-time
lawyer position at Student Legal
Services, Keefe was the director of Law
Related Education at the Nebraska Bar
“What I’m doing here is much like
what I did before,” Keefe said. “I love
educating others.”
Keefe encourages students to use
the center even if they just have a ques

“Students have already paid their
student fees,” Keefe said. “We’ll help

funded completely by student fees. All
enrolled UNL students pay $1.90 per
semester to support die colter. Students
who receive a Fund A refund are ineli
gible to use the center, she said.
ASUN President Sara Russell said
students should use legal services for
any legal aspect, big or small.
“They are a service to you - you pay
for it,” Russell said. “They’ll help you
out in any way they can.”

students in landlord and tenant disputes,
traffic offenses, misdemeanors, family
law, employment and consumer cases.
Student Legal Services cannot han

Keefe said if the center is incapable
of providing a student with service, the
attorneys will direct the student to other
services and agencies in Lincoln.
“We’ll do our best,” Keefe said.
“But if we cannot help, we’ll direct you
to other services that can.”

RHA plans week of fun, infort iation
By Jessica Fargen
Staff writer
Ever want to know what the most
common thing residence hall stu
dents do but would never admit to?
Survey says residence hall stu
dents can find out the answer to that
question by showing up Friday night
to play Family Feud, one of many
activities for Residents’ Week, which
begins today.
For the next six days, residence
hall students can enjoy a free relax
ation class, take a personal safety
course or practice their bowling
skills, said Residence Hall
Association President Ben Wallace.
Residents’ Week is usually in the
spring, Wallace said, but RHA decid
ed to have it in the fall this year
because it provides students with
information they can use the rest of
the year.
Plus, it can be a lot of fun.
Students can play the game show
Family Feud on Friday night. A sur
vey of residence hall students taken
last year is die basis for the game.
Students can sign up for teams,
and the game will last as long as the
students do or until it gets too late,
Wallace said.
If game shows don’t appeal to stu
dents, he said, maybe bowling will.
A shuttle bus will be running
Tuesday night from City Campus to
the Nebraska East Union for bowl
All the activities are free except
the trip to Champions Fun Center,
1555 Yolande Ave., on Saturday.
Wallace said residence hall life is
not all fun and games, which is why a
personal safety course and presenta
tions on contraception and sexually
transmitted infections will be offered.
And for students who just want to
calm down, a relaxation course will
be offered today. Wallace said he has
attended the sessions, and he recom
mended students bring a pillow and
be ready to calm their minds.
Wallace said if students have
questions about Residents’ Week
they can call the RHA office at (402)
472-1095 or talk to hall presidents.
