Legal Advice

The Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nuremberg provides free legal advice for students and enrolled doctoral candidates in matters of, for example, labor law, commercial matters, tenancy rights, as well as any other legal difficulties related to student life.

The legal counseling service makes an effort to be “student friendly,” and prior registration is not required, although one should expect relatively long wait times. These conversations are, of course, kept confidential, and repeated sessions are also possible.

Due to internal limitations, the general legal counseling services is not able to help students with questions about financing their education. Please see the responsible office, the Amt für Ausbildungsförderung, for further information and appropriate counseling.

Exclusively in-person counseling (not written or by telephone) is offered at the following appointments:


Monday, 13:00 – 14:30
Hofmannstr. 1, Room 201

Thursday, 18:00 – 19:30
Juridicum (Faculty of Law), Schillerstr. 1, Room U1.127


Monday, 13:00 – 14:30
