Naturalization Clinic

The Naturalization Clinic is a joint effort between El Centro Legal and UCLA's Law Students for Immigrant Justice (LSIJ) and is hosted by the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN). There are currently around two million people in California who are eligible to naturalize and become citizens. Naturalization is incredibly important as it generally protects people from being put in deportation proceedings. The Clinic seeks to help these individuals naturalize by having law students volunteer at CARECEN's naturalization events. The events take place about once or twice a month (typically on Saturdays) at various community centers throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Volunteers help clients complete their naturalization applications (N-400) and fee waivers and prepare the application for clients to mail following the clinic. Spanish language skills are helpful but not required.
