Dear visitor, 
welcome to the English presentation of the Ljubljana Legal Clinic for Refugees and Foreigners. The English presentation is only an abridged version of the Legal Clinic website, striving to offer basic information on this project.

Ljubljana Legal Clinic for Refugees and Foreigners was established in 2000 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana with the main goal of offering the students an opportunity to experience (unpaid) practical work in the field of law and to offer legal assistance to refugees and foreigners in Slovenia. Each year, approximately 10 - 15 senior year students take part in the programme, benefiting from introductory seminars held by practicioners from the field and from the opportunity to get involved in everyday work of one of the partner institutions of the Legal Clinic. The Legal Clinic co-operates with Pravno-informacijski center nevladnih organizacij (PIC), an NGO from Ljubljana, the Administrative Court of the Republic of Slovenia, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Slovenia, the Human Rights Ombudswoman of the Republic of SloveniaSlovene Philanthropy, Association for promotion of voluntary work, NGO from Ljubljana, The Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia  and the Ministry of the Interior.

The Legal Clinic also benefits from regular contacts and support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
