Refugee Law Clinic Munich e.V.

Equality and non-discrimination

Human rights

The Refugee Law Clinic Munich e.V. is a student initiative which, as a non-profit association, offers asylum seekers, refugees and foreigners free legal advice in the area of asylum and foreigners law.

The idea of "Law Clinics" originated at American universities and has been practised there since the 1960s. The aim is to give free legal advice by students to those seeking advice. While training their practical skills, law students can in this way give socially disadvantaged groups of people access to qualified legal advice.
This idea is now also catching on at German law schools. Numerous law clinics have been founded in recent years. Some are organised as independent student associations, others are linked to the universities.

To offer migrants and refugees free legal help.

Student volunteers of the Law Clinics wish to meet the claim and responsibility of helping to shape civil society and the constitutional democracy. That is why the RLCs work hard to promote a pragmatic approach, based on the fundamental values of the constitution, where the rule of law is particularly challenged.
