The Shan Potts Immigration Law Fellowship

PLS at UCLA is pleased to offer this opportunity with Shan Potts Law Offices. Through this fellowship, you'll have an opportunity to learn the fundamental basics of immigration law and have an opportunity to work on a real case.

Students will work in teams and carry out specific tasks associated with preparing and filing an immigration case. You’ll learn the basics of case law, including elements, motions, and principles. We’ll also have guests from law firms and organizations that will participate as instructors.

This fellowship will be interactive and comprehensive - you’ll be exposed to the full process of preparing a case, and at the end of the fellowship you will have an opportunity to visit the Los Angeles Immigration Court, meet with an immigration judge, and appear as respondents on behalf of a client while Mr Potts addresses the case.

We will meet in Bunche Hall on three Saturdays, from 1-2PM: February 16, February 23, and March 2. The court session is TBD.

Note that students will be assigned work to complete outside of class sessions.

Spaces is very limited. Applications are due no later than February 1st, but we strongly encourage interested students to apply early.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions: prelaw@ucla.edu. Please note that this fellowship is only open to current UCLA students.
