In this article, the authors address the issues of the functioning of legal clinics operating
at higher educational institutions, their origins and a detailed analysis of the current
state. The study presents the point of view that legal clinics and the development of clinical
education, in general, can largely determine the more effective and high-quality work of
law enforcement agencies, including prosecution authorities and administration of justice.
The authors describe the experience of interaction between the “Academic Center for Legal
Protection” legal clinic at the Department of Civil Procedure of the Ural State Law University,
and the Prosecutor’s Office of the Leninsky District of Yekaterinburg. Among the results of
this interaction, it is noted that social adaptation and professional orientation of students are
carried out through communication with applicants and prosecutors, reducing social tension
in society, since a citizen who has not received an “understandable” explanation, resolving
an issue from the prosecutor can always count on free legal advice from representatives of
the legal clinic, as well as the fact that prosecutors can significantly reduce the burden on
employees in the field of prosecutorial response to violations of the rights and freedoms of
citizens in disputes arising from civil law and other legal relations.

Keywords: legal clinic; prosecutor’s office; clinicians; jurisprudence; legal education.
