Every now and then, life throws you into a situation where you feel like there is nobody you can to turn to. Maybe DUO has rejected your application, or maybe your landlord is refusing to return your deposit. College Life - together with outspoken law firms - will assist you.

LEGAL AID

In the Netherlands, any person has the right to request legal aid from the 'Raad voor Rechtsbijstand.' Since students & graduates usually cannot afford paying a full fee for legal services, College Life can help you apply for the legal subsidy that covers a significant amount of the cost.

OBJECTIONS & APPEALS

If you disagree with a decision made by either a private or public entity (e.g. DUO), you must object and/or appeal it within a certain timeframe. Also, objections and/or appeals must be clearly articulated, preferably in Dutch. Together with top law firms, College Life has prepared two verified templates you can use for free.
