The legal counseling service currently offered by Dr. Lin Li-hsyang of the Department of Public Administration, Dr. Chang Sheng-hsiung of the Department of Transportation Management and Lu Chi-chang, an attorney of local legal service company. The legal service can be done in both face-to-face-fashion or via e-mail.
