Immigration legal services for UC students and their families is still available, remotely, including on DACA renewals despite COVID-19 pandemic
April 10, 2020
The university is still providing free legal assistance to UC students and their families on immigration-related matters despite the COVID pandemic through the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center. Although the Center's attorneys are not on campus they are fully functional and available to help students and their families. Please contact them at email@example.com or (530) 752-7996 if you need assistance. If you are a UC Berkeley student, please contact instead https://undocu.berkeley.edu/legal-support-overview/legal-support-appointments/.
If you currently have DACA status and have not applied yet for renewal, we urge you to do so now and these organizations can help you do so. Renewal through USCIS no longer requires in person biometric appointments and they will use the information already on file.
