Law Clinic OSIJEK PRO BONO is the general live client drop-in legal advice clinic that has been registered with the Ministry of Justice as primary legal aid provider since 2015. The start of clinical operations coincide with the grant award received from the U.S. Department of State in autumn 2016.
Ever since the Clinic is successfully providing legal aid to poverty stricken people in Osijek region.
By mid 2019. the Clinic has processed 350 cases and that number is constantly growing.
The clinical expertise is civil law in its widest meaning, but we also help people confronted with debt collection proceedings, misdemeanor prosecutions, labor law, typical family law issues especially child support, spousal maintenance and wide range of administrative proceedings.
Knowing how hard it is for foreign nationals to obtain free legal advice in English in Osijek, our newest assistance is provision of legal advice to all foreign students at the University of Osijek, primarily concerning the issues related to housing, medical care and residence permits but also covering other legal matters surrounding international students.
Ordinarily, the Clinic has open hours twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 17-18,30h except during exam periods and summer vacation (June 10 – September 27 2019.). However, even during that time we can be reached via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If necessary, we meet our clients by appointment.
Besides, we invite you all to take a look at our clinical newspaper Klinika News available at: https://klinika.pravos.unios.hr/?page_id=376.
