We could never implement this concept without our great lecturers, who give a comprehensive lecture every year that is always oriented towards the latest topics in the field of asylum and residence law. Thank you for your support!

care of the supervision
Since 2018 supervisor at RLC Berlin
Due to the legal advice we offer, there is an obligation for our advisors to regularly take part in a supervision. Our supervision is overseen by qualified lawyers who are themselves active in asylum and residence law. We also use the supervision to ensure that our advisors remain up to date in the legal field in order to be able to ensure the quality of the advice, among other things. Apart from the regular appointments, our advisors can email our supervisors at any time to obtain an expert opinion on urgent questions. We therefore appreciate the great support provided by our supervisors.
