Qatar’s free law clinic provides legal aid to all, regardless gender, working class or nationality.
Qatar University’s law clinic is up and running, working around the clock to provide Qatar residents in need of legal aid their services for free.
The clinic located within the university campus, and was established originally in 2012. However, lawyers began working there only few month ago, offering free legal services to people in need.
Since February, the the lawyers at the clinic have been helping people, resolving cases involving labor, child custody, marriage and divorce issues for free.
They have made it clear that they aim to focus on women’s and children’s rights cases, as well as helping the elderly and those with disabilities, and victims of human trafficking also.
The initiative started by the School of Law at Qatar University in efforts to push both students and lawyers to practice different forms of law, and also give back to their community. As important as it is to make a living from a profession, it is soul rewarding to give hope and justice to those who can not afford it.
Even though the clinic prioritizes cases involving people who can not afford legal representation and aid, they do not require any documents to prove liability, and therefore anyone can benefit from the highly esteemed lawyers working with the program.
In cases where legal issues need to go to court, the firm will connect the clients with lawyers from well known law firms who are willing to work pro bono. One of the firms is the Al Sulaiti Law Firm.
The clinic is available around the clock and is available through 4403 7786 for any type of legal help.
