The program consists of a full service of professional legal advice and other legal services important to resolve legal problems of socially disadvantaged, especially those with low incomes and low levels of education. For the duration of the Action (August - December) we offered legal assistance over 250 people and helped them to resolve legal position. The target group, to whom the program is intended are persons with low incomes, the unemployed, people with low pensions, students, etc..
With this Action we are trying to establish legal safety of an individual and to inform them of their rights and duties. Furthermore, its main lead is the protection of human rights and commitment for a welfare state. We performed legal assistance in the area of protection of human rights, civil law, consumer rights and protection, administrative law, labor law, social security law, criminal law and trespasses and other areas, where legal protection is necessary. Legal assistance means examination of legal situation and appropriate legal regulations to notify beneficiary with all the questions and circumstances, that are important for their rights, obligations, and legal relations; beyond that, legal assistance informs them about conditions, shape and content of legal device and procedures for their insurance.
