Legislative Assistants (LA) is considered an introductory role in the program, and delegates serving as LAs have the opportunity to see how the entire program works, by listening to debate in Chambers or in committees, and observing the other roles such as Lobbyists, Press Corp, and the Judicial Program. Each LA is assigned to legislator in their delegation and assists in the writing and research prior to Springfield. Additionally, all LAs (including Sargeants at Arms, Clerks, Secretaries, and Bill Flow Clerks) will participate in a State Issues Forum to bring their own ideas before the Springfield Assembly. The duties of a Legislative Assistant vary from the Pre-Legs to the Assembly.
Eligibility: Legislative Assistants can be freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors.
