Immigration Clinic

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals UT Law Assistance Clinics

The Immigration Clinic and Pro Bono Program at the University of Texas School of Law are hosting free clinics to assist undocumented students who qualify for the new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program announced by the Obama Administration.

At the clinics volunteers will assist applicants to prepare the forms and documents necessary to apply for benefits under the DACA program.  Although lawyers will be available for consultation, lawyers at the clinics will not represent clinic participants or provide any additional services after the clinics.

An appointment and a screening interview are required to attend a clinic.  No walk-ins.  Applicants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

How to make an appointment to attend a clinic
To make an appointment and complete a screening interview, call 512-232-1292. If there is no answer, leave a message with your name and a phone number where you can be reached.  You can also email your name and phone number to Sonja Hartley at, and someone will get back to you.

What to bring to the clinic
Your DACA application must include documents that establish your eligibility for DACA status, and it is important that you bring these documents to the clinic.  For information about what to bring to the clinic, please see:
