Discover Our Model: The Critical Need for School-Based Immigration Legal Services

Prerna Lal, Apr. 29, 2018 - "The California Law Review at the University of California, Berkeley has finally published my law review article, co-written with Mindy Phillips, about the path-breaking school-based legal services program that we built in our respective positions.  The article can be found online here.  While I have moved on from this work, I hope it can be used as a valuable tool for colleges and universities looking to serve their undocumented students, and students who come from mixed-status families.  I have several criticisms of the programs that did not make it into the final version of the article, but I am happy to serve as a consultant for schools and universities hoping to emulate this model or create their own.  Until we get universal representation (and even if we do), there is no one perfect service delivery model for our communities."
