Students will perform on-site legal work as externs under the supervision of field placement supervisors in government agencies or non-profit entities, which specialize in the practice of immigration and citizenship law, and related legal issues such as housing, domestic violence, public benefits, employment, and human trafficking. Some of these placements require, or would welcome, bilingual ability in languages such as Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Pacific Islander languages. Current placement sites and practice descriptions are set forth in the Directory of Field Placements, which is available in the Field Placement Program office. Placement sites may include Executive Office of Immigration Review, California Rural Legal Assistance, Opening Doors, Inc., General Consulate of Guatemala, Los Angeles, General Consulate of Mexico, Sacramento, Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach Organization, Asian Law Alliance, My Sister's House, and Legal Services of Northern California. The Field Placement Director will help students find an appropriate placement, and must approve each student's registration. (P/F).
