UC Reports on King Hall Students Assisting Immigrants

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Mar 30, 2017

The University of California website is highlighting the great work of UC law students on behalf of immigrants.

The piece begins with a recent event in which King Hall students provided free legal assistance to applicants for citizenship"

“On a recent Saturday morning at the Mexican Consulate in Sacramento, dozens of UC Davis law students turned out to offer free legal assistance to throngs of anxious immigrants.

They helped some file papers for U.S. citizenship, and assisted others with designating authorized caregivers for their children, should they be deported.

Put together by UC Davis law students in conjunction with the Mexican Consulate and California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, the clinic is just one of the ways in which UC law students have stepped up in recent weeks to help meet a surging demand for legal services.”
