What We Do
We provide the general public with information and educational materials and activities on the California Grand Jury system that will help increase public awareness of the valuable role the grand jury plays in our democratic system of government.
We provide comprehensive training on all subjects relative to empaneled grand juries available to all 58 counties within California including grand jury training as well as specific workshops on key topics relevant to grand jury service.

We can help you become
an effective grand juror
CGJA conducts training seminars for grand jurors and alternates on their various civil functions. These seminars include twelve full hours of presentations and over 300 pages of training materials. Experienced and highly qualified trainers who have served as grand jurors or grand jury legal advisors present these programs locally, throughout the state as “onsite” seminars or via Zoom if Covid-19 restrictions exist.
We also conduct Foreperson and Pro Tem Workshops, Legal Advisors’ Workshops, and Report Writing Workshops.
The Gift of Your Time
CGJA is an all-volunteer membership organization. We succeed mainly because our members volunteer to serve on our committees and/or train grand jurors. Serving on committees almost never requires travel as we communicate via email and computer video. Our trainers do travel to venues throughout the state and we reimburse them for lodging, mileage, and a modest per diem for other expenses.
