Founded in 2020, the Center for Immigration Law and Policy (CILP) at the UCLA School of Law expands the law school’s role as a national leader in immigration law and policy. CILP generates innovative ideas at the intersection of immigration scholarship and practice; serves as a hub for transforming those ideas into meaningful changes in immigration policy at the local, state, and national level; and empowers students with unique opportunities for experiential learning through work with academics, practitioners, policymakers, and activists. CILP pursues those goals by supporting faculty performing cutting-edge work in immigration law and policy; bolstering initiatives for student engagement including the Immigrant Family Legal Clinic, the Immigrants’ Rights Policy Clinic and service-learning trips for UCLA Law students to border regions; engaging in strategic litigation; publishing briefings and reports on immigration policy; and hosting conferences and symposia featuring top national scholars.
