What kind of services does the Clinic provide?

In a survey conducted by the Associated Students, immigration was identified as a top priority for CSUN students.  The Clinic will provide pro bono advice, counsel and representation to CSUN students in a variety of immigration legal services, including, but not limited to: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Adjustment of Status, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status ("SIJS"), Violence against Women Act ("VAWA"), U visa and Naturalization Services.  In addition to client representation, Southwestern Law Students will conduct community based legal workshops to meet the needs of the CSUN student community.  

What if I have a legal issue that is not related to immigration?

The Clinic is committed to assisting all CSUN students gain access to legal services.  For cases that fall outside of the scope of our representation, the Clinic will provide CSUN students with information about their legal rights as well as referrals to reputable pro-bono or low cost legal services.
