Harris was born on October 20, 1964 in Oakland, California to a Tamil Indian mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris (1938–2009), and a Jamaican father, Donald Harris. Her mother was a prominent breast cancer researcher, who emigrated from Chennai (then Madras), Tamil Nadu, India, in 1960, and her father a Stanford University economics professor, who emigrated from Jamaica in 1961 for graduate study in economics at University of California, Berkeley. Her name, Kamalā, comes from the Sanskrit word Kamala ("Lotus"), another name of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity, whose seat is a lotus flower. She was extremely close to her maternal grandfather, P. V. Gopalan, an Indian diplomat, and as a child she frequently visited her family in Besant Nagar, in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

The family lived in Berkeley, California, where both of Harris' parents attended graduate school. Harris' parents divorced when she was 7 and her mother was granted custody of the children by court-ordered settlement. After the divorce, her mother moved with the children to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where Shyamala took a position doing research at the Jewish General Hospital and teaching at McGill University.

Harris then returned to California, earning her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from University of California, Hastings College of the Law, in 1989. Harris failed the California bar exam her first time, later saying, "it's not a measure of your capacity." She was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1990.
