URGENT CALL FOR ATTORNEY VOLUNTEERS!

By | September 19, 2017


In follow up to Arizona State University President Michael Crow's plan to help DACA students, the country's largest and most innovative public university pledges its assistance to provide legal representation for as many students and other DACA recipients as possible.  Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Dean Douglas Sylvester makes an urgent plea to the ASU and broader communities to provide necessary legal support and assistance.

"Law schools have a responsibility to not only educate students, but also to help their communities at large.  ASU Law is well-positioned to do so as part of a university with locations throughout Arizona, in Washington, DC, and Santa Monica, CA," said Sylvester.

ASU Law is partnering with the Arizona Legal Center to address the most pressing need -- the renewal of DACA applications leading up to the October 5 deadline -- by holding a "DACA Know Your Rights Forum" on Thursday, September 14, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Beus Center for Law and Society.

Following the forum, attorneys will answer questions and trained volunteers will assist DACA recipients with completing renewal applications.  There are opportunities to help the day of the event and in the weeks following.

Alumni, here's how you can help.

ASU Law will help as many students and other DACA eligible people as possible renew their application by the October 5, 2017 deadline.  ASU Law needs your support.   Dean Sylvester urges ASU Law alumni to consider volunteering for this initiative.
