Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The UNLV Immigration Clinic at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law has offered immigration legal assistance to university students, staff and family members since 2018.

The UNLV Immigration Clinic and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) have now partnered to expand immigration legal assistance.

Thanks to grants from CSN and UNLV, the Immigration Clinic is now able to offer legal services to the CSN community.

The official launch ceremony held Jan. 30 at College of Southern Nevada’s North Las Vegas Campus featured remarks by Governor Sisolak, NSHE Chancellor Reilly, CSN President Zaragoza, and UNLV President Meana.

This expanded service demonstrates the investment that Nevada’s institutions of higher education have made to support their diverse and vibrant student populations.

Some of the immigration community resources made available at the event were Ask-A-Lawyer and help with DACA renewal. For more information on services offered by this program visit the UNLV Immigration Clinic Facebook page.

The first 30 individuals to sign up for the DACA workshop will receive a $495 scholarship to cover their renewal fees.
