Rättspraktik (Law Clinic)

In 2014, the Department of Law at the University of Gothenburg  started the first Law Clinic in Sweden.  A law clinic, or legal clinic, is usually defined as a non-profit law practice where law students provide free legal services to clients. Our Law Clinic, Rättspraktik, is a platform for clinical legal education, research and collaboration with the civil society and the City of Gothenburg.

We have chosen to work by a model that we call the Gothenburg Model. By collaborating with a group of non-profit organisations which offer free legal counselling we aim at creating a good exchange of experiences for both our students and the organisations. The students who are affiliated with the Law Clinic have internships at the organisations and can practice and develop their practical legal skills and knowledge under the supervision of both lawyers at the organisations and teachers at the Department of Law. For more information, see Welfare Law in Theory and Practice (Law Clinic).

Our partner non-profit organisations are:

  • Agape
  • Asylrättsstudenterna (Law students for asylum rights)
  • Civic offices in Angered and Biskopsgården
  • Clinic for asylum seekers and refugees
  • Consumer and citizen services Gothenburg

  • Gothenburg Disability Rights Organisation
