Pacific McGeorge collaborated with the UC Davis School of Law and La Raza Law Students Association's Cesar Chavez Day of Service immigration service events.

Blake Nordahl and Raquel Aldana organized the volunteers from Pacific McGeorge. Other collaborators were California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, and University of the Pacific in Stockton.

The first of two naturalization workshops to assist eligible lawful permanent residents to apply for United States Citizenship was held on March 30 at the SIEU Local 1000 office in Sacramento. The second will be held on April 13 at University of the Pacific in Stockton.

More than 100 applicants were served at the March 30 workshop by dozens of volunteer attorneys and law students, including at least 10 Pacific McGeorge students ranging from first year to LL.M., and several alumni.
