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

Clients will be provided with legal information, a general consultation to discuss a pathway to legal status, when possible, and in many cases, full legal representation with regards to their immigration matters. In some cases, students 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 necessary.

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

For follow-up on existing cases and to receive guidance on your immigration or legal-related questions, please send an email to usplegal@ebclc.org.
