|Hebron University Legal Clinic was established based on a grant from the United Nations Development Programme in Palestine, and other donors, in September 2011. |
The Clinic seeks to build the capacity of students to practice law before graduation in order to move to the market equipped with practical lawyering skills. Through the Clinic, student-lawyers assist marginalized groups in the society, who could not afford paying lawyers, with pro-bono legal assistance. In addition, the Clinic constitutes the hub for legal research, teaching and rights activism in HU and in Palestine.
The Clinic offers a wide-range of legal services on variety of legal fields, such as criminal justice, juvenile justice, women rights, labor law, disability, human rights, civil law and humanitarian law. It works in partnership with local non-governmental organizations, governmental institutions and international organizations.
