This website is a collaboration between Curran & Berger LLP and Educators for Fair Consideration (E4FC). We offer legal resources for undocumented students in the United States, with the goal of helping students find long-term immigration remedies. Our niche is to provide legal advice that is comprehensive - that evaluates and advises on all areas of immigration law. Unlike many undocumented adults in the US, undocumented students may have remedies (short or long term) based on their education. There are no magic answers, but accurate information on immigration law issues helps undocumented students make decisions about their future.

About Educators For Fair Consideration (E4FC)

Founded in 2006, Educators for Fair Consideration’s mission is to support undocumented students in realizing their academic and career goals and actively contributing to society. We offer holistic programming that addresses the financial, legal, career, and emotional health needs of undocumented students. Specifically, we provide scholar­ships, legal services, professional and personal development workshops, and a strong peer network for undocumented stu­dents. We also lead presentations and create education­al materials to raise awareness and support for undocumented students nationwide. Our programming is designed by and for undocumented young people with support from committed allies.
