About us


The legal clinic works to assist Jerusalemites in obtaining their legal rights of a social, economic and political nature, especially national insurance, residency and building issues without a permit cases. The legal clinic began its mission by providing guidance and counseling to the beneficiaries on the one hand, as well as through awareness meetings and training conducted by the Center on the other hand.

Since October 2011, the Legal Clinic has begun to represent beneficiaries in the area of building violations without the authorization of a qualified advocate and representation before the various judicial degrees. We have begun to develop the work of the clinic in the representation of beneficiaries in the field of residence (such as work on revocation of canceled residency) and so-called identity retrieval and representation in the area of reunification and registration of children before the Interior Ministry and visas and non-deportation and pleading before the Israeli courts of all degrees). The Center also represents beneficiaries of insurance residency cases before the courts. Moreover; The Center has benefited from collective punishment cases when needed.

The Center has already succeeded in retrieving many withdrawn identities and registering many children, as well as succeeding in many cases of reunification after the abolition of the security ban or proof of the state of life. As well as to protect individual homes from demolition and thus managed to preserve some rights of stolen citizens.

Through its work, the clinic aims to involve the beneficiaries in knowing most of the steps in their file, and educating them about all the necessary procedures, which distinguish the clinic from the private sector. The Center believes that the knowledge of the beneficiaries and their understanding of the details of their problems and mechanisms of solutions. The Legal Clinic also seeks to improve the development of knowledge about dealing with the above-mentioned issues among scholars, social workers and other members of the community through the publication of publications on this subject through websites and awareness sessions.
