DACA Students

DACA Students - Update

  • January 2018: The Immigration Detention and DACA (IDD) Clinic at UConn Law School is offering legal consultations for people who have lost, or will be losing, protection they previously had under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs.  The consultations will provide advice on possible immigration avenues, and assistance on DACA renewal for those who qualify, but the IDD Clinic is generally not equipped to provide further representation.  The consultations will be performed by teams of law student interns under the supervision of an experienced attorney.  Consultations and any other services will be free of charge (except for potential filing fees) and will likely require two or more meetings at the UConn Law School in Hartford.  If you would like a consultation with the IDD Clinic, please contact Jon Bauer, at or 860-570-5205, or Anna Cabot, at or 860-570-5460. Please note that the scope of the immigration services offered by the clinic are limited. 

  • Delayed Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) - For CSCU's position on DACA, legal and community resources, and a frequently asked questions area, please review the CSCU web page.
