About us

Students` legal support serviceStudents` legal support service was created in 2002 as a part of Tempus-Tacis program «The formation of students` legal support services at PSU». The service aims to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practice.

The students of the Faculty of Law might be able to give advice and support and to deliver high standards of professional competence.

Nowadays Students` legal support service is an independent branch of Polotsk State University also being under the Rector`s direct control.

The students from the Faculty of Law are involved in the service support activities. Our service cannot be considered as a legal entity.

We provide expert advice direct to the public, including:

  • legal and information support which is also available for the University students and academic staff. This comprises free legal support and drafting.
  • numerous seminars and lectures for students from other faculties, school children and prisoners of Novopolotsk penal colony No. 9 (training class «Street law: Every day law»)
  • a wide range of training seminars for the students of the Faculty of Law
  • workshops, conferences and other events consecrated to clinical legal education and students` research activity development

The Students` legal support service is committed to provide free legal support considering civil, family, housing, labour and administrative law.

We do not deal with criminal and criminal procedure law cases. Further-more, we do not offer support people involved in the entrepreneurial activity.

Our service is advisory in its nature.

The Students` legal support stays inactive during the period of examinations and holidays.

We are open to collaboration and cooperation.
