Berkeley Law’s International Human Rights Law Clinic and the Undocumented Students Program have partnered to provide free legal support and resources about immigration law to undocumented students at Cal. Berkeley Law’s International Human Rights Law Clinic hosts informational workshops and weekly office hours to provide legal information regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and other immigration matters to interested students.
Students can check in at the Dreamers Resource Center, located in 119 Cesar Chavez Student Center, every THURSDAY from 10-1 p.m. for Spring semester.
