EBLRLA Scholarship Fund



Jocelyn Gomez holds a deep passion and dedication to serving low-income immigrant communities in California. She grew in the Eastern Coachella Valley located in Southern California and is a proud daughter of Mexican immigrant farmworkers. Throughout her law school experience, Jocelyn dedicated much of her free time to learning about the ways in which she can be a fierce advocate for immigrant communities through her work as a law clerk for organizations like the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project and Legal Aid at Work’s National Origin and Immigrants’ Rights Program. During law school, Jocelyn was also a Co-Leader for the Berkeley Immigration Group, a student-led legal service project aimed to end immigration detention in the United States and support detained immigrants and their families. After law school, Jocelyn is motivated to pursue a career in immigration law and will be working as an Equal Justice Works Fellow with the nonprofit organization, Immigration Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA), to extend and tailor its reach of immigration legal services to low-income survivors of trafficking throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Jocelyn is a 3L at Berkeley Law.
