Legal Support at Cal

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 UC Berkeley students and, when possible, their undocumented family members.

The team at East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) has expertise in a wide range of immigration legal matters, including but not limited to DACA, family-based petitions, removal defense, asylum, U visas, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, advance parole, naturalization, FOIA/criminal background checks, and post-conviction relief, and regularly represents clients in matters before USCIS and the San Francisco Immigration Court. 

Clients will be provided with a general consultation to discuss potential pathways to legal status, and in many cases, when possible, full legal representation with regards to their immigration matters. In some cases, clients may be referred to other units at EBCLC or to partner organizations in the Bay Area or other parts of California. All legal services are free. USP also provides fee assistance when possible to current students and, subject to income eligibility requirements, to alumni and family members who qualify for services.
