How to

bridge the gap between citizens and social legal professionals?

Amsterdam has a vast network of social counsellors, legal desks, legal stores, neighbourhood teams, legal consultation hours and other (informal) legal aid providers. But citizens have a hard time finding the right desk. This project aims to close the gap between citizens and legal professionals.

This Amsterdam map is the first in the Netherlands to look specifically at the network of (social) legal aid providers. The map makes it easy for citizens and legal aid providers to search by type of aid provider or type of legal problem. We also keep the latest contact information of the legal aid providers on this map, and we add new providers as soon as they become known to us.

Check out the website here (Dutch only).

The social legal map of Amsterdam is an initiative of the Amsterdam Law Hub at the University of Amsterdam, in collaboration with Patroon Legal Design. This map was developed thanks to a grant from the Legal Aid Board (Raad voor Rechtsbijstand).
