Legislative Assistants (LA) is a role open to all students. 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. All LAs participate in the State Issues Forum which consists of selection of a topic pertinent to state issues, preparing a written proposal, and doing an oral presentation in Springfield. LAs are eligible to run for administrative offices (Sargeants at Arms, Clerks, Secretaries, and Bill Flow Clerks, and Youth Governor Personal Aides.) LAs can assist legislators in their delegation in the writing of bills/bill briefs and research prior to Springfield. LAs assist with elections at Pre-Leg 2 and at Springfield Assembly.
Eligibility: Legislative Assistants can be freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors.
