EBS Diversity & Refugee Law Clinic: Working together for justice and diversity


EBS students actively support refugees and fight discrimination.

The Diversity & Refugee Law Clinic was founded in 2022 and is an initiative of students of EBS Law School in cooperation with the Chairs of Professor Dr Emanuel V. Towfigh and Professor Dr Michael Goldhammer, LL.M. The aim of the Law Clinic is to strengthen solidarity and diversity in our society and to act as a link between social commitment and legal advice.


In the area of migration, the clinic is a point of contact for refugees to get answers and support in the integration process. The Law Clinic will do everything in its power to facilitate the integration process in Germany, particularly in the Wiesbaden region, either through the students themselves or through collaborating specialists in this field of law.

Among other things, the students will assist with the following tasks

- Accompany the individual to meetings with the authorities,

- Providing information on how to apply for a residence permit,

- assist with referrals to other support organisations and

- providing translations.

The Law Clinic plans to gradually expand its services in order to provide the best possible support to those seeking help. The workshop on asylum law, led by lawyer Mariela Witt, provided participants with comprehensive insight and practical assistance. The aim of such workshops is to promote understanding of complex legal issues, while fostering a supportive community for refugees and those facing discrimination.

Diversity is not only a research focus of Professor Dr. Emanuel V. Towfigh, but also an existing social problem to which the Law Clinic would like to draw more attention. In this respect, the Clinic is a point of contact for people who have experienced discrimination or who wish to categorise possible discriminatory experiences. In collaboration with other organisations specialising in discrimination, the Diversity & Refugee Law Clinic will help to categorise and defend against discrimination.
