Dear DGSOM Community,
“Summer has come and passed. The innocent can never last. Wake me up when September ends.” As you cope with the turmoil either in the block or out in the world, DGSOM AMSA wants to send you cordial greetings and our warmest support. We are dedicated to serving our medical students at both the student life and policy level. in this email, we would like to share with you a couple of outstanding and free legal service resources provided to all UCLA students, including tailored services to our DACA recipients.
For a broad range of legal issues (other than tax and immigration), UCLA Student Legal Services provides assistance such as negotiating on behalf of students and drafting legal documents. For immigration issues, UCLA Undocumented Student Program (USP), in collaboration with the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center, focuses on serving our undocumented and DACA students, as well as students with family members who are undocumented. If you are in fear of losing your legal status for any reason, we encourage you to contact either service for consultation. If your situation is not within the range of either service, you can still obtain a referral to trustworthy outside legal resources. One of us had the pleasure of speaking with UCLA USP Attorney Habiba in person last week and was impressed with her compassion and dedication to our community. Below are details on how to utilize both services.
Service: Case-by-case immigration consultation & immigration workshops (call to sign up) in the following areas:
Immigrating through Family members
Green Cards (Lawful Permanent Residency)
Immigration Court and Detention
Hours: Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (available in the evenings when needed) Email: email@example.com Phone: (310)206-2980 To directly make an appointment with Attorney Habiba: https://habibaucimm.youcanbook.me/
Service: Confidential legal assistance provided by experienced attorneys on a wide range of legal issues. Several immigration consultations each quarter for all students. All services by appointment only. For more information, go to www.studentlegal.ucla.edu.
