Citizens’ Legislative Seminar

The Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) , organized by the Senate Office of Education and Civic Engagement, aims to better educate the public on the functions of the Massachusetts State Legislature. CLS was originally established in 1976 through a joint effort of the Massachusetts State Senate and the University of Massachusetts, Boston. This seminar is offered twice a year, spring and fall.

The curriculum includes the History of the Legislature, The Formal Legislative Process, The Informal Legislative Process, The Budget, The Parliamentary Role of the Clerk of the Senate and The Future of the Legislature. The presentations are made by Senators and Senate staff.

Highlights of the two-day program are a simulated legislative hearing and a simulated Senate Session held in the Senate Chamber where participants use what they have learned to actively experience the legislative process.

Interested in attending from 9:30 to 4:00 on both October 24 and 25? Contact eric.helmuth@masenate.gov
