UC Davis Immigration Law Clinic Holds Sacramento Citizenship Workshop
UC Davis School of Law faculty, staff attorneys, students and alumni offered free naturalization legal services and consultations at a citizenship workshop in Sacramento on October 9.
Under the supervision of licensed attorneys, dozens of UC Davis law students practiced their legal skills and assisted hundreds of green card holders in applying for naturalization. Fox40 News and Univision Channel 19 covered the workshop for their evening newscasts. In the weeks leading up to the workshop, students Aidin Castillo '11 and Aida Macedo '11 appeared on Univision newscasts to promote the efforts of the Immigration Law Clinic.
The event at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1000 office was presented by the Law School's Immigration Law Clinic, in partnership with the office of state Sen. Darrell Steinberg, the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, the UC Davis La Raza Law Students Association, the Sacramento Law Foundation, SEIU and Univision.
The UC Davis Immigration Law Clinic provides an invaluable service to Northern California's immigrant population, offering education and free legal services to low-income immigrants while enabling law students to gain practical, real-world experience.
