Legal Support at Cal
The East Bay Community Law Center, a clinic of Boalt Hall School of Law and the Undocumented Student Program have partnered to provide free legal support and resources about immigration law to undocumented students at Cal.
Through the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC), the USP Immigration Attorney holds informational workshops and weekly office hours to provide legal information regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and other immigration benefits that may be available to interested students, family members, and members of the East Bay community.
During the Fall 2015 semester, the USP Immigration Attorney will be holding weekly Office Hours in 148 Cesar Chavez on Friday’s from 12 noon to 5pm and will be seeing students on a drop in basis.
To request an appointment, and to receive guidance on your immigration or legal-related questions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.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:
- Legal orientation
- Free one-on-one legal consultation for themselves
- Free one-on-one legal consultation for their family members
- Free legal representation regarding immigration matters
- Financial support with DACA application and renewal fee (until funds are exhausted)
