About Us

About us

Law&Legal is a law clinic organised by students with offices in Bayreuth, Berlin, Frankfurt am Main, Halle, Heidelberg, Leipzig, Munich and Tuebingen.

We are a not-for-profit organisation providing legal advice when the amount of dispute is “too small” or when there is simply not enough money to consult a conventional lawyer. We provide students, asylum seekers, foundations and non-profit start-ups founded by students with legal advice. We provide you a wide range of services and advice in nearly any area of law. We offer advice for free, i.e. pro bono and as a charitable organisation we are neither commercially minded nor do we seek a profit. Our advisors are advanced law students who are not only passionate about their field but also dedicated to volunteer work. Throughout the entire process we are guided by experienced lawyers.

  • You have problems with your mobile phone provider?
  • Your landlord does not want to address any repairs or does not repay your deposit?
  • You are at loggerheads with your neighbour and you want to end the dispute by an out-of-court agreement?
  • You want to establish an organisation?

We at Law&Legal are here to help you.

Since 2008 students are allowed to offer legal advice within certain bounds in Germany. Therefore we have to reject cases for which “Zulassung zur Rechtsanwaltschaft” (similar to an admission to the bar) is needed or when the amount of dispute is above a certain threshold.

Here you can send us a non-binding consultation request, which is free of charge. We will verify whether we can proceed with your request and will then be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Here you can find more details on what we do.
