Legal Clinics at LAVC

Throughout the year, the DRC facilitates Legal Clinics and Immigration Update workshops, which students and their families can attend to speak directly with lawyers. Within our Legal Clinics, students are able to speak one-on-one with attorneys, have their questions answered, as well as renew DACA applications.
