Founded in 2020, the Center for Immigration Law and Policy (CILP) at UCLA School of Law is at the cutting edge of immigration scholarship and practice - developing bold legal, policy, and narrative change strategies that advance the way we think about immigration law and policy in the U.S. and beyond.
