Legal Aid and Copyright Services

Legal Aid

ArtSU members are entitled to free assistance in their legal problems from the Legal Aid Committee of the University of Helsinki Law Students' Association Pykälä. The Legal Aid Committee provides its services by telephone, by email and in person. The Committee helps in all legal issues (except in taxation), advises on legal documentation and reviews ready-made documents. The Committee does not represent its clients in official matters and/or in a court of law and does not draft nor complete legal documents for its clients. The services of the Legal Aid Committee are free of charge.

Up-to-date contact information and call hours of the Legal Aid Committee can be found on Pykälä’s website (Finnish)..
