Prometheus Legal Consultancy
Prometheus Legal Consultancy is a foundation with the charitable aim of providing free legal advice to both individuals and corporations with a legal question or complaint. Prometheus is currently focusing on legal requests that are related to the Covid-19 pandemic, now that a large group of people has been hit particularly hard and we want to reach out to them.We provide our services to both individuals and corporations with legal questions and/or complaints that have arisen (in)directly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.As volunteers, we see it as our social duty to give something back to society at this time.
We derive our name from Greek mythology. Out of love for mankind, the titan Prometheus stole the fire from the Olympic gods and gave it back to the people. Prometheus is thus a symbol of charity.This same charity is fundamental in a crisis like that in which our society now finds itself. Based on this humble philosophy, Prometheus offers free legal advice on complaints due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The legal advice that we provide for is written by excellent students from the Honours College of Law and monitored by professionals from the relevant legal practice.
