Legislative Advocacy - Social Justice Workshop
This workshop offers an in-depth examination of the legislative process in action both within the California Legislature and from the advocates' perspective. Students will have the opportunity to learn from legislative leaders and social justice advocates who have successfully drafted, proposed, and enacted state statutes and regulations. In their selected special matter areas students will work directly with legislative staffers, agency attorneys, lobbyists, and non-profit organizations in the Bay Area and Sacramento to research and develop legislative strategies, draft and track bills, participate in committee hearings, and attend legislative hearings. They will also be trained in key legislative advocacy skills. Although most classes will be held at Boalt some limited instruction and observation will take place in Sacramento.
