Attention: No consultation hours for asylum law during the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the extraordinary situation with regards to COVID-19, all open consultation hours for asylum law counseling will be suspended until further notice. A personal consultation is only possible in exceptional cases by prior appointment. The usual hygiene rules apply here, in particular an obligation to wear medical masks. It is strongly recommended to perform a Corona quick test beforehand.

In order to maintain our counselling services, we will continue to offer counselling via e-mail. Therefore, you can continue to fill out our contact form or contact us at asylberatung@probono-heidelberg.de. In order to be able to provide effective e-mail counselling, we ask you to include all important and relevant information in the application form or in the e-mail.

We will keep you informed on our homepage about further developments regarding our consultation programs. Stay healthy!

Yours sincerely,
Marcel Breitmayer
2nd chairperson, Head of Asylum Law Department


Who wants what from whom? - This question may sound trivial at first, but even for law students it is often extremely difficult to answer. So how does the layman feel when a legal problem presents itself and needs to be solved?

This is why we want to be your contact partner if you need legal advice but cannot afford it. Our student legal advisors - with the support of experienced lawyers - will assist you free of charge with legal problems in civil (which includes labour law), asylum and administrative law (which includes social law).

free legal assistance

Our work for you is entirely free of charge. Therefore, you can trust that you will under no circumstances receive an invoice from us.

anonymous legal assistance

We guarantee all your personal data will be handled completely confidential, during and after our work. Your contact details are only accessible to the team of advisors and the member responsible for the association’s internal case allocation. Therefore, you can absolutely rely on anonymity.

verified legal assistance

We are law students and are supported in our work by our advisory board, which is available to answer any questions we may have. All members of our advisory board are fully qualified lawyers, i.e. have passed the 1st state law examination and completed their legal preparatory service.

legal assistance from a team

Our work always takes place in a team of at least two consultants. Consequently, you can be confident that your case will be reviewed from at least two perspectives.
