With enrollment at the TUHH, every student is insured for legal protection through the AStA. That’s why we offer a free legal consultation every week on Thursdays between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. in Room E.069. All you need to do is register with our secretary Mrs. Maja Meiser: (anwalt@tuhh.de / 040/42 878 3764)

Registration by mail: anwalt@asta.tuhh.de

The insurance includes the following benefits:

1. general administrative legal protection

Limited to the judicial representation of legal interests (i.e. no out-of-court financing). For the representation of legal interests before administrative courts in private, non-traffic law matters.

This also includes lawsuits for a Master’s place (capacity lawsuits): If you want to continue directly with the Master’s after your Bachelor’s at the TUHH, but are rejected by the TUHH, you can file a lawsuit.

2. rental legal protection

For you as a tenant of a housing unit, limited to the judicial representation of legal interests (i.e. no out-of-court financing).

3. legal protection for damages in the private sphere and legal protection for traffic damages

For the assertion of claims for damages, insofar as these are not also based on a breach of contract or an infringement of an urgent right to land, buildings or parts of buildings. In the area of traffic, for the assertion of claims for damages as the owner of a motor vehicle on land that is subject to registration or has an insurance license plate, if the vehicle is registered in the student’s name or has an insurance license plate in his/her name.

4. Employment legal protection

Limited to the judicial representation of legal interests (i.e. no out-of-court financing). For the representation of legal interests as an employee from employment relationships as well as from public service relationships with regard to claims under service and pension law”.

Important: Insurance coverage is generally not provided for the representation of legal interests in connection with a commercial, freelance or other self-employed activity. The following applies to all benefits: should a court case be lost, the co-payment amounts to 350 euros.
