Prometheus Legal Consultancy

Prometheus Legal Consultancy is a foundation with the objective of providing free legal advice to both individuals and companies with a legal question or complaint. At the moment Prometheus is mainly involved in supporting social organisations that need legal assistance. In addition, individuals can come to us with their individual disputes. As volunteers, we see it as our social duty to give something back to society in these times.

The Foundation borrows its name from Greek mythology. Out of love for mankind, the titan Prometheus stole fire from the Olympic gods and returned it to mankind. Prometheus is thus a symbol of benevolence. This same benevolence is fundamental in the crisis in which our society finds itself today. With this in mind, we offer  you free legal advice on the complaints you may have as a result of the COVID-19-pandemic.

Free Legal Advice

Our legal advice is provided entirely free of charge and is written by volunteers. They do not receive any remuneration for the services they provide on behalf of the Foundation.

Quality Checked

Our letters of advice are written by excellent law students and checked by professionals from the relevant legal practice.

Excellent Students

The volunteers of Prometheus are enthusiastic students of the Amsterdam Honours College of Law. This means that they belong to the top 5% of students of their Bachelor of Laws at the University of Amsterdam* and that they have been educated intensively. This excellence is expressed in their academic achievements over the years as well as in the practical experience they have gained in various fields of law. 

* Prometheus emphasises that she is an independent volunteer foundation and that she is not to be affiliated with the Honours College of Law and/or University of Amsterdam as an educational institution.

They are more than happy to use this knowledge and practical experience to answer your legal question or complaint.
