Immigration Legal Support

Law-StudentsThe East Bay Community Law Clinic (EBCLC) and the Undocumented Student Program have partnered to provide free legal support and resources about immigration law to undocumented students at Cal.

Students who are eligible to apply for DACA or another immigration status are matched with pro-bono attorneys who will represent them in their cases at no charge.
Students are eligible for:

  • Legal Orientation
  • Free Legal one-on-one consultation
  • Financial support with DACA application fee (until funds are exhausted)

Students can reach EBCLC’s program at: dreamers@ebclc.org or you can always contact the USP directly for more information or any urgent matters at: undocu@berkeley.edu.
