Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley started the Earl Warren Fellowship in honor of former United States Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Earl Warren who served as District Attorney of Alameda County from 1925 to 1938. Earl Warren set the standard in shaping our office’s reputation for fairness, integrity, and professionalism, a legacy that endures to this day in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

The Earl Warren Fellowship is open to recent college graduates who are planning on attending law school. The goal of the Fellowship is to further inspire and motivate future law students in their pursuit of a legal career.

The Fellowship is a full time paid position that entails assisting our Deputy District Attorneys with discovery compliance in our Oakland and Hayward branch offices. The chosen Fellows will also support the prosecution team in trial preparation and learn first-hand the inner workings of the District Attorney’s Office. In 2016, we hired two Fellows for the Earl Warren Fellowship program.
