Brescia Legal Clinic
The Brescia Legal Clinic is the oldest Italian Legal Clinic. Established, experimentally, in 2009 at the Brescia Law Department, it has grown stronger over the years and it can be now be considered as one of the most innovative initiatives promoted by the University. The Brescia Legal Clinic is based on the idea that students should have the opportunity not only to acquire legal knowledge but also to learn the law through experience, handling real cases and dealing with real people in accordance with the so called “live-client model”. These educational activities aim not only to foster the growth of the practical skills of students, but also to enhance access to justice and solve social problems in favour of individuals, NGOs, communities which need legal advice and defence of excellent quality in the following fields: protection of fundamental rights, consumer law, labour law, housing, education, environment, immigration and so on. In fact, the Brescia Legal Clinic is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach and cases – belonging to different legal fields - are chosen taking into account various factors: educational value, exemplarity, social relevance. The Clinic benefits from a remarkable support by the Local Bar Association and the Local Labour Consultants Association and it joins a strong collaboration with several NGOs.
