Legal protection clinic
Are you wondering what rights you have at the University, or have you experienced flaws when completing courses? Have unreasonable obstacles emerged to hinder your study progress, or have you felt a grade you received was unfair?
In the legal protection clinic, HYY’s specialist will advise you on legal protection issues related to studies. Legal protection clinics are organised in the Guidance Corner on Fridays according to the following schedule:
6 September at 11am - 1pm
25 October at 11am - 1pm
22 November at 1pm - 3pm
13 December at 11am - 1pm
We recommend that you check whether HYY’s new guide on legal protection has a quick answer to your question. The guide includes the most common problems that students of the University of Helsinki face in their studies as well as their solutions. You can read the guide online or get yourself a printed copy from either the legal protection clinic or HYY’s Services Office!
You can also get guidance on legal protection by email or phone from HYY’s specialist in charge of advice on legal protection.
In matters not related to studies, HYY’s members are entitled to free legal aid provided by Pykälä’s Legal Aid Committee.
Legal aid in Swedish is provided by Codex.
How much can I earn when receiving student aid? Will my credits from this year be enough for Kela? What do I do if I am worried about summer-time subsistence? In our subsistence guidance, HYY’s specialist will advise you in issues related to student benefits, help you find further information and, if needed, support you when you contact Kela or social services, for instance.
Subsistence guidance in the Guidance Corner on Fridays:
23 August 1pm - 3pm
6 September 1pm - 3pm
25 October 1pm - 3pm
