George Parampathu

Legislative Advocacy Intern

George joined ACLU in May 2022. Over the last year, he has helped the legislative staff balance their workload in all key issue areas. This work has included drafting policy memoranda, providing substantive testimony in legislative committee, and writing position letters for submission to the Legislature.

George is currently a law student at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. In law school, he has published his view that anti-homelessness laws are unconstitutional, helped draft bill language that would make it easier for sexually harassed attorneys to seek legal redress, and created a guide for veterans trying to update their disability compensation with the Department of Veterans Affairs. His proudest work in law school was volunteering with the Clean Slate Clinic to help low-income clients clear their criminal records so that they could gain access to better employment.

George is a first-generation Indian American who was born and raised in Irvine, California. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in political science and Honors Bachelor of Science in neurobiology from the University of California, Irvine. George is committed to ensuring the government work for, rather than against, those in need. After graduating from law school, he would like to do state-level policy work in Sacramento.

In his free time, George likes visiting regional parks, playing with his friends’ dogs, and re-watching “The West Wing”.
