The Refugee Law Clinic is a project conducted by law students from Cologne which supports migrants, in particular refugees and asylum seekers. We offer pro bono legal and non-legal advice and other support, e.g. we accompany and give guidance to our clients when attending appointments at the border agency. To that end we collaborate with qualified lawyers and other charity organizations.

If we can be of any assistance, do not hesitate to attend our counseling.

Please do not primarily send us an E-mail or a Facebook message – these communication channels are not suitable for an appropriate first-communication within a mandate.


Ankerstraße 15, 50676 Köln.

(If you are not from the area around cologne, we suggest to contact another initiative in your area – local counseling is much more promising! Here you can find contact details from other Refugee Law Clinics.)


Currently the counseling takes place every two weeks on the first and third Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. 

If you need an arabic translator, please contact Tarick Nofal:  taricknofal@lawcliniccologne.com. He will participate in the consultation hour and assist you.
