Graduate Legal Assistants (GLAs) who are part of the Attorney General's Honors Program work in a Section within one of the California Department of Justice’s Civil, Criminal, or Public Rights Divisions, as part of a dynamic legal team committed to public service. Under the supervision of a licensed attorney, Honors GLAs will have the opportunity to work on substantive legal matters of public interest and importance. They conduct legal and other research and assist in preparing a variety of legal documents, including briefs, memoranda and legislative analyses, often under tight deadlines, for client agencies or the Attorney General and other constitutional officers. Under the supervision of a licensed attorney, GLAs may have the opportunity to assist in special investigations and gain courtroom experience. They will also receive on-the-job training, career development programming, and mentorship, in addition to connecting with the 2021 Honors Program cohort and gaining exposure to the work being done across various Sections and Divisions of the California Department of Justice. For more information, please visit the Honors Program page on the Attorney General's website.
