On March 1, the Central Legal Clinic will start to provide free legal assistance to individuals on a regular basis in Kyiv. The project is made possible thanks to the support of Lavrynovych & Partners Law Firm.
Any individual, who needs legal advice, can make an appointment and get free legal assistance on family, inheritance, employment, civil law matters. “The clinic will be available for initial consultation on the enforcement of law, procedures to protect the violated rights, registration of ownership”, – said the Head of the Central Legal Clinic (CLC), Associate Partner of Lavrynovych & Partners Law Firm Andriy Moroz.
Separate consultant in CLC will be assigned for the protection of children’s rights. “Unfortunately, nowadays little attention is paid to this issue, children in Ukraine are the most vulnerable segment of the people. We want to change that and bring attention to this issue”, – said Managing Partner of Lavrynovych and Partners Maksym Lavrynovych. Lawyers of Lavrynovych & Partners will also work in CLC as well as lawyers of those law firms that wish to join the project.

“We were preparing for the opening of the Central Legal Clinic with those who wanted to help and was willing to work, – said Maksym Lavrynovych. – Free legal services are essential for vulnerable populations, those who are poorly informed about their rights. The constitutional state begins with each of us, so you must constantly raise legal awareness.
