About us



The EU Rights Clinic is a joint initiative of the University of Kent in Brussels, the Kent Law Clinic and ECAS, the European Citizen Action Service.

The EU Rights Clinic seeks to contribute to improvements in European policy and legislation by engaging in strategic litigation and advocacy efforts targeting systematic breaches of EU free movement and migration rights by the national authorities of the EU Member States.

This assistance is provided by students enrolled on the EU Migration Law course at the University of Kent in Brussels working in partnership with qualified lawyers and citizens’ rights advisers.

The EU Rights clinic began its operations in January 2013 to coincide with the European Year of Citizens. You can find out more about our clinic here and watch a presentation on Youtube here.

The EU Rights is grateful for the financial support it receives from the European Programme for Integration and Migration under its sub-fund on EU mobility.

We are a proud member of LawWorks the UK’s leading legal pro bono charity for solicitors, in-house counsel, mediators and students.

  5. I am so glad to find this site and to hopefully find that there is somewhere that British pensioners may obtain some accurate information about how to deal with problems arising out of choosing to reside in the EU ,we appear to be regarded as unworthy of our entitlements and indeed much of our income is derived from having bought this through years of work and contributions. I have just emailed you with my specific demise .Your site is new and I wish you luck with this .
