The Legal Advisors of the RLC Hamburg
As of September 2016, around 25 student legal advisors volunteer weekly for the RLC Hamburg, working in teams of two to four at several locations across Hamburg. They have completed the entire training cycle at the University of Hamburg law faculty and regularly attend continuing training and supervision (see About the RLC Hamburg). Many of them can advise in several languages. In addition, several legal professionals have joined the RLC Hamburg as volunteers. A new training cycle starts in October 2016.
