Legal Advice

Students may also obtain brief legal information regarding any problems arising from their individual living conditions directly at the office of Studentenwerk Leipzig. Detailed legal advice and assistance, however, is not provided there.

Please understand that information cannot be given via telephone or in writing.


Leisure accident insurance for students

During their studies and vocational training, students have a compulsory accident insurance. However, the accident insurance coverage is very strictly limited to the university or educational institution and its direct area of influence. Studentenwerk Leipzig has therefore concluded an additional leisure accident insurance. For further information, please contact Mrs. Sylvia Groffik.


Good to know:

Our free legal assistance or legal advice may be used by duly enrolled students of any of the eight universities and academies associated with Studentenwerk Leipzig. Furthermore, we kindly ask you to bring along a student identity card with a valid stamp for the current semester. It is not necessary to make a prior appointment. You can contact our counsellors during office hours.
