Legal Consultation Centre

Are you an international student, do you study at the AUAS and do you have a legal question? The Legal Consultation Centre is here to help you with free legal advice!

Do you have a conflict with your landlord? Are you wondering if your tenancy agreement is correct? Would you like to know whether a rent increase is permitted and / or if you really have to pay it? Are there any problems with your housing benefit? Or are you facing eviction from your temporary home? Debt collecting issues?

The Legal Consultation Centre is ready to advise! If we cannot be of help, we will refer you to one of our cooperation partners. The centre not only helps you find out what rights and obligations you have in a certain situation, which steps you can or should take, but our centre’s staff also help you write letters, notices of objection and / or notices of appeal.


The centre is located in room 02A08 of the Muller-Lulofshuis. To get answers to legal questions, you can just walk in during the consulting hours, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Mondays to Fridays.

You can also go to one of the BOOT consultation centres in Amsterdam Zuidoost, Nieuw-West and Oost. Please refer to hva.nl/boot for details on addresses and consulting hours. Our staff provide legal support at these BOOT locations as well.

The legal consultation centre was established by the AUAS bachelor degree programmes Legal Studies and Social Legal Services in 2007. The centre provides legal advice, for free, to HvA members and residents of Amsterdam. Every year, the centre handles about 700 cases. The centre’s staff are third-year students of the bachelor degree programmes Legal Studies and Social Legal Services. During their internship period, these students are supervised by Law and Language teachers of the HvA legal degree programmes.
