Legal Clinic

History of the Legal Clinic


The “Legal Clinic” initiative of the University of Szeged Faculty of Law and Political Sciences commenced in 2005, being inspired by the international successes of similar initiatives, and because it recognized the potential of these possibilities. The priorities for our Legal Clinic are to provide legal aid for the indigent, to maintain connections with the local interest-groups and their representatives, and members of the civil organizations. Access to our tutor-teachers (attorney-at-law teachers) is available for anyone, who is interested even from university students as well.


Participating in the expert legal training opens up the possibility for students to join the work of the Legal Clinic. Students can participate in the work of Legal Clinic by registering for the Legal Clinic as a facultative course. For those interested in the Legal Clinic, the classes are held in small groups, under the supervision of an academic teacher, during these sessions the participants resolve and analyze cases relating to discrimination, or make contact with clients, thus broaden the legal approach of the participating students, who have a desire to help, and to get to know the challenges of real-life legal practice.



Introduction of Legal Clinic and its goals


The goals of the Legal Clinic have remained the same since 2005:


  • prepare the students for legal practice using their already acquired knowledge,
  • strengthen their solidarity towards people who stand in need of legal aid, information, advice,
  • form and develop their professional ethic,
  • build awareness of discrimination issues in the law.
