Katherine Courtney (Berkeley Law ’21)

Fall 2019 Immigration Clinical Student

Katie joined the Immigration Unit with an eagerness to work directly with clients, and over the semester, became an invaluable part of the EBCLC Immigration Unit’s Community College partnership. Many of the clients Katie worked with had never applied for any kind of immigration relief or status before, and she worked closely with each of them, put them at ease, and kept them on track. I absolutely trusted that our clients were in good hands with Katie. Thanks to her attention to detail and diligent work throughout the semester, five clients are on their way to obtaining DACA protection and work permits, two clients will become U.S. lawful permanent residents, and two more clients will become U.S. citizens!
