Through the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC), the USP Legal Support Team provides general consultations, and full legal representation on a wide range of immigration matters that are available to current UC Berkeley students and their family members.

Clients will be provided with legal information, a general consultation to create a pathway to legal status, when possible, 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 referred to partner organizations in the Bay Area, or other parts of California, if necesasry.

As of Spring 2019, appointments will take place at:

East Bay Community Law Center’s Adeline Location

2921 Adeline Street, Berkeley, CA 94703

All consultations with any USP legal staff are strictly confidential and privileged information and all information will be reviewed by licensed attorneys. Students should bring any pertinent immigration paperwork to the appointment with them so that we can best serve them.

DACA Renewal Update (as of 2/21/2019):

EBCLC will hold evening clinics (5-8 pm with appointments starting at 5:00 or 6:30) for the Spring 2019 semester to handle the volume of DACA renewals we are receiving. If your DACA expires in more than 3 months, please attend one of these renewal clinics. If your DACA expires within 3 months then please schedule an appointment through the booking system. Fee assistance is available for UC Berkeley students’ DACA renewals. You do not need to schedule an appointment through our booking system.

  1. Full Name
  2. Phone number
  3. Date of DACA expiration
  4. Clinic date and time preference

*Please bring a paper copy of your previous DACA Renewal and your DACA work permit to the appointment.
