A partnership between UCLA and LAUSD to provide legal services to immigrant students and families at the RFK Community Schools in Koreatown/Pico Union.

Services Provided

Provide direct legal representation, legal consultations, community outreach, education to immigrant students and families at the RFK Community Schools. All of our services are free and representation is confidential.

Who We Serve

We primarily serve immigrant students and their family in the six schools that operate as RFK Community Schools. We also serve the teachers, administrators, & community members in the school community, surrounding neighborhood & beyond.

Mission and Goals

We seek to work across disciplines to provide holistic services and empowering community education to immigrant families in the school setting. In so doing, we aim to prepare future lawyers to serve the needs of marginalized communities with skill and compassion.

ImmFam was a great opportunity to engage very closely with students and their families, work with teachers on outreach projects, and see how a new legal clinic can become established in a collaborative way.

Participating in UCLA’s Immigrant Family Legal Clinic was by far the most powerful part of my time in law school.

This is one of the most unique clinics at UCLA Law, allowing students to engage in direct legal services, community outreach and education, and policy advocacy all in one semester.
