A means of scientific development and humanitarian service

The legal clinic is one of the most important aspects exploited by law faculties in local and international universities to prove to society that colleges are not a classroom and a professor gives a dry lecture And then test the students, but must be vaccinated this theoretical aspect in the faculties of law, along with the other work is in many aspects, including virtual court and training by students who passed the third stage to the fourth stage during the summer holiday And to take students to the correctional services - prisons, all of which are in the interest of developing the legal queen of law school students.

The legal clinic aims to strengthen the scientific aspect of law students by enabling students to combine theoretical concepts with practical legal procedures, teaching students how to analyze the problems they face while practicing law, and developing the law student's ability to think creatively to solve problems and legal issues And to strengthen the spirit of cooperation among students by supporting them to work as a team in small groups and many other positive aspects that benefit the law student when working in the legal clinic. The Legal Clinic also aims to assist those with low income in providing legal advice to them or even pleading before the courts or handling their treatment in the judicial and other government departments, as well as organizing seminars and workshops and lecturing to strengthen the mentality of pleading before the courts. Legal clinics are a very important means of educating people with low income and socially marginalized classes about their rights and how to claim these rights administratively and legally. The clinic may take a step further by becoming an important source of information on human rights violations, whether for official or informal institutions Human.

One of the phenomena of the new millennium is the marked increase in the quantity and quality of civil society organizations. There are many organizations that resort to these legal clinics to be an effective link between citizens and the legal clinic in order to help citizens to contact these clinics and benefit from their services. Or through the search for sources of funding for these clinics to help them bear their costs, especially the costs of staff or the costs of hiring lawyers.

The idea of legal clinic despite the fact that it is a somewhat old idea in Europe and the United States of America, but it is newly established in Iraq in general and the Kurdistan Region in particular, and due to this modernity for several reasons and the most important is that the laws in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region prevent graduates of the Faculty of Law, The government is able to plead before the courts or rather prevent it from practicing the profession of law. This is what was avoided when establishing these clinics in Iraq through contracting the legal clinic with a lawyer or with a law firm that includes a number of lawyers to perform the task of pleading when needed.

Has been guaranteed organization(USAID) has established the task of establishing these clinics in the faculties of law in Iraqi universities through the program "Justice is accessible to all". This organization has started its work through the organization of several conferences, courses and workshops, encouraging Iraqi universities to participate in virtual court competitions, When the College of Law in our university tried to enter into this activity, it hit the barrier of being a non-governmental university and can not benefit from the funding of the American Organization. Hence, the decision of the presidency of Norouz University to cover the expenses necessary for the creation of the blind And an agreement was signed between the University of Norwich and USAID to establish the clinic. The university order was issued for the establishment of the clinic at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. The teaching was given by Hadeen Shehab Ahmed to the clinic and teaching director Hersh Fadel Shaker. The clinic has succeeded in a short period in providing more than thirty legal consultation and dumping a number of seminars on students of the Faculty of Law, and the clinic is currently working in coordination with the Union of Lawyers of the Kurdistan Region - the Chamber of Lawyers Duhok, to organize seminars for lawyers lawyers about And the rules of practicing the profession of law as well as coordination with the judges to introduce the law of pleadings and the assets of pleading before the courts.
