Student Legal Support Clinic

The Student Legal Support Clinic (“Clinic”) is a unique collaboration between CSUN, the Associated Students and Southwestern Law School’s Community Lawyering Clinic.  The Clinic is directed by Southwestern Professor and Directing Attorney Julia Vázquez and staffed by law students under her direct supervision.



Can I still get legal assistance even though campus is closed?

During the spring 2023 semester, Legal Clinic appointments are available Monday through Friday.


How can I make an appointment?

By appointment only, on a first come, first serve basis.  To make an appointment use your CSUN email at


Who is eligible to receive services?  

The Clinic is open to currently enrolled CSUN students.  


How can the Clinic assist me?

The Clinic is committed to assisting all CSUN students gain access to legal services for any legal issue.  For cases that fall outside of the scope of our representation, we provide CSUN students with a legal empowerment plan, which includes their legal rights as well as referrals to reputable pro-bono or low-cost legal services.


What kind of cases does the Clinic represent?

In a survey conducted by the Associated Students, immigration was identified as a top priority for CSUN students.  The Clinic will provide pro bono advice, counsel and representation to CSUN students in a variety of immigration legal services, including, but not limited to: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Adjustment of Status, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status ("SIJS"), Violence against Women Act ("VAWA"), U visa and Naturalization Services.  In addition to client representation, Southwestern Law Students will conduct community based legal workshops to meet the needs of the CSUN student community.    


How can I contact the Clinic?


The Clinic is offered as a service to CSUN students but does not constitute solicitation or provision of legal advice by CSUN.  Any legal information or advice is provided solely by Southwestern Law School.
