Justice & Diversity Center: Legal Services Program

The Northern California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice (NCCIJ)

The Northern California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice (NCCIJ) is a regional collaborative for detained immigrant representation that consists of three legal immigrant representation non-profits seasoned in detained representation and removal defense.  Those organizations are Centro Legal de la Raza, Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto and Asian Law Caucus. 

The Justice & Diversity Center of The Bar Association of San Francisco is the fiscal lead for the NCCIJ and also houses the NCCIJ Lead Attorney Coordinator and NCCIJ Immigration Case Coordinator to provide services coordination, legal training, technical assistance and advocacy support to NCCIJ as well as to attorneys in the San Francisco Immigrant Legal Defense Collaborative (SFILDC), who are handling detained caseloads. 

NCCIJ attorneys identify clients in need of services via the long-standing Attorney of the Day Program at the San Francisco Immigration Court detained dockets and provide limited and full scope representation.

Partner Organizations in the NCCIJ include:

Centro Legal de la Raza

Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto

Asian Law Caucus:  Asian Americans Advancing Justice
