The research's primary objetive is to analize the relation of the models of university legal practice centers with access to justice.

  1. Mapping the experiences of centering legal practice in public institutions of higher education that offer degrees in Law;
  2. Analyzing local experiences of legal pratice centers developed by three public institutions of higher education: the University of Brasilia, the Federal University of Goiás (both in the Goiânia and Cidade de Goiás campi) and the University of Southeast Goiás;
  3. Analyzing models of center creation identified in the experiences analyzed;
  4. Analyzing human rights education in the selected experiences.

Both projects plan the profiling of those who seek the support of the Legal Practice Center and of the cases treated. Furthermore, it has the objective of delineating the meanings of justice and the trajectories in search of rights recognition. The projects are complemented by a broad research of the social context of those assisted.
