Present status of the legal clinics in Poland There are very few NGO based legal clinics in Poland. Almost all of the legal clinics in Poland are recognized by the Universities as a part of the legal curriculum at our law schools (as one of the optional classes that are offered to the students). Legal Clinics are present at every law school in Poland. Some of the legal clinics (Krakow, Warsaw, Bialystok, Lodz) gained a status of a chair or laboratory, which means that they became part of the university budget. All of the legal clinics that are based at the Universities get all the office costs covered, majority of the professor’s salaries are paid by the universities.
