The East Bay Community Law Center, a clinic of Berkeley School of Law and the Undocumented Student Program have partnered to provide free legal support and resources about immigration law to undocumented students and undocumented family members at Cal.

Through the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC), the USP Immigration Attorney provides general consultations, and full representation on a wide range of immigration matters that may be available to current UC Berkeley students, family members, and members of the East Bay community.

For Spring 2017, appointments take place on Tuesdays at Room 129, Cesar Chavez Student Center, unless otherwise noted by the attorney or staff. All consultations with either the attorney or legal assistant are strictly confidential and privileged information. Students should bring any pertinent immigration paperwork to the appointment with them so that we can best serve them.

Students should make their initial appointments online. For follow-up and to receive guidance on your immigration or legal-related questions, send an email to dreamers@ebclc.org. Students, and their family members, who are eligible to apply for DACA or another immigration status will be provided with legal information, a general consultation to create a pathway to legal status, and in many cases, full legal representation with regards to their immigration matters. In some cases, matters will be referred to other units at EBCLC, and if EBCLC cannot take the case, the students and their family members may be matched with pro-bono attorneys who will represent them in their cases at no charge.

Students are eligible for:

  • Free one-on-one legal consultation for themselves
  • Free one-on-one legal consultation with their immediate family members
  • Free legal representation regarding immigration matters
  • Financial support with application fees for DACA and adjustment of status (until funds are exhausted)
