Send UCLA Law Students to Assist Vulnerable Communities

Each year, UCLA School of Law's Service Learning Trip Program sends current UCLA law students to provide legal assistance to our most vulnerable communities who lives in areas where there is a drastic shortage of legal providers.

 

Past trips have been to Tijuana, Mexico to assist asylum seekers at the border and Dilley, Texas to assist women and children seeking asylum who are detained at the largest detention facilities in the United States. 

 

With your support, we hope to raise enough funds to allow students to return to Dilley and Tijuana; to travel to Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has the highest rate of women incarcerated in the U.S., to help eliminate the burden of court fines and fees for clients of Still She Rises; and to go to California's Central Valley to help those in rural areas fight homelessness and housing instability.

 

With a donation, YOU are able to help send a group of current UCLA Law students to assist those living in these communities gain access to free, legal assistance that they otherwise would not be able to receive.

 

UCLA Law students will make an immediate and positive impact on individuals and communities that desperately need legal assistance. This experience will in turn provide our students with a unique, hands-on learning experience. They will gain invaluable exposure to public interest law on the local, regional, and national levels while making a positive impact on the life of others.

 

Your donation will help us send 25 law students on a service learning trip in Spring and Summer 2020 and provide additional funding for trips and support of the UCLA Law Public Interest Program in the future. We hope you will support our project.
