East Bay Community Law Center & USP Collaboration

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 necessary.

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.
