The Rutgers Immigrant Community Assistance Project (RICAP) at Rutgers Law School was created as part of the University’s ongoing commitment to serve all of its students.
Led by attorney Jason Hernandez, who has more than five years of experience working at a refugee resettlement and immigration legal service non-profit organization in Philadelphia, RICAP strives to foster a safe environment on campus and to remove barriers to student success by providing immigration legal services. RICAP is available to provide informational “Immigration” and “Know Your Rights” presentations on every Rutgers campus.
All students currently enrolled at Rutgers are eligible for a free and confidential legal consultation. In some instances, direct representation may be available through RICAP directly or by referral to a reputable attorney.
For questions and appointments, contact RICAP: RICAP-Info@law.rutgers.edu
