For asylum seekers in detention

Detained asylum seekers have the right to receive personal legal counselling from DRC. This follows the Danish Aliens Act § 37d, stk. 1. DRC regularly visits prisons around Denmark, especially the Institution Ellebæk and the Western Prison in Copenhagen, and provides counselling to all, who ask for it. 

You can make an appointment for counselling with DRC by either requesting the police or the personnel at the prison to arrange a meeting, or by contacting us directly.
