Social and Legal Advice

Social and Legal Advice for students enrolled at universities in Karlsruhe and Pforzheim within the scope of our area of responsibility

We provide first-hand information in the fields of law and refer you if necessary to other offices. Due to many years of service we dispose of a large network of co-operation and contacts.

Since its establishment on January 1st, 1995, advisory topics have particularly extended to the following areas that are typical for students:
  • Tenancy
  • Alimony law
  • Law on foreign residents
  • Social security and social rights issues, such as health insurance
  • Disability, pregnancy, studying with children
  • Income support, housing benefit, child benefit and child-raising allowance
  • General university regulations, esp. completion of high school exams
  • Second repetitions
  • Contribution issues

What do I need to bring to the appointment with me?

Please send with your appointment request the following documents:
- current enrollment paper as well as
- a picture of your student ID.

Please also indicate whether the advice is desired by phone or video chat.
