Civil Law Division
Employment & Administrative
Mandate Section — Oakland
The Employment and Administrative Mandate (“EAM”) Section of the Office of
the Attorney General primarily handles civil litigation in the area of
employment law.
Deputy Attorneys General in the EAM Section counsel and represent and
defend state government agencies in employment and constitutional issues filed
in both federal and state courts, ranging from discrimination to harassment.
Deputies also work on non-employment matters, which include representing
agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles, the California Highway
Patrol and the Horse Racing Commission, in administrative proceedings and
appeals.
The EAM Section in Oakland has positions open for student externs throughout
the school year and summer. Student externs will have the opportunity to
experience a broad range of civil trial and appellate practice. Externs are
expected to assist deputies in researching and drafting briefs, preparing
discovery, and assisting in trial preparation. They may attend witness
interviews, depositions, settlement conferences, court hearings and trials. They
may also attend and assist at administrative hearings. Externs will have every
opportunity to prepare a substantial writing sample.
