Please review a summary of the 15th District Court's informal process for contesting a traffic ticket.
Student Legal Services' ("SLS") attorneys do not represent students in court for traffic ticket cases. We have found that the chance of success is so low that attending these hearings is not a good use of our limited resources. However, you should not be deterred in trying to contest the traffic ticket. There is no harm in trying.
Therefore, we ask that you take the time to review the following information. It should give you a general idea on this topic. However, students can still schedule an appointment with SLS to discuss/help prepare your case, as well as, to have the court process explained to you.
