The University of Arkansas System added pre-paid legal services as a voluntary benefit effective July 2017. This product/company was selected via a thorough Request for Proposal process, allowing the University to select the most complete and competitive offering in the market.

LegalShield is the vendor and you would be purchasing an individual policy directly through them. LegalShield gives you the ability to talk to a lawyer on any personal legal matter without worrying about high hourly costs. For one flat monthly fee, they can access legal advice, no matter how traumatic or trivial the issue.
