Legal Services


Direct immigration legal services are available free of charge to CSU students and employees. Attorneys and paralegals are available to assist students with general consultations, DACA renewals and general assistance in filling out forms such as family-based petitions. This project aims to serve undocumented students, students with immigration questions, staff and faculty. 


We are excited to announce that the Immigrant Legal Defense (ILD) will be the agency working directly with the San Francisco State University community. ILD is a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing immigration legal services.  ILD’s mission is to promote justice through the provision of legal representation to underserved immigrant communities. One of the most critical aspects in the delivery of high volume, high quality legal services is an experienced team of attorneys who work efficiently together. 


The Dream Resource Center at San Francisco State University will serve as liaison for this initiative and will provide: 

  • Personalized support to students

  • Advocate for students

  • Refer students to campus and community resources 

  • Manage day-to-day operations of the center and resources offered to students

  1. Undocumented students will receive priority in scheduling appointments and receiving legal assistance
