State Attorneys General and Department of Justice Issues Committee


Who We Are




We are the State Attorneys General and Department of Justice Issues Committee.

The objective of the committee is to create a collegial, quasi-academic environment where individuals may vigorously address, debate and share knowledge about the array of legal matters within the state Attorneys General and Department of Justice jurisdiction and authority. The Committee membership will include private practitioners, corporate counsel, government lawyers, judges, law professors, law students, non-lawyers with an interest in our work, and, of course, state Attorneys General and their staff.


More About Us

Structurally, the Committee is led by three Co-Chairs; namely, a sitting Attorney General, and two lawyers, representing different aspects of Attorney General practice. Each of the Co-Chairs is dedicated to making this Committee a centerpiece of the State and Local Government Law Section and a valuable enhancement to ABA membership.

The State Attorneys General and Department of Justice Issues Committee will set out annually to present several high profile panel discussions; publish annually at least one scholarly law review article, and, on a quarterly basis, to publish articles of interest to membership. We also hope to work toward publication of a book with regular updates for practitioners in this area.


Message From The Chair



Ellen Rosenblum –

“As Oregon’s new Attorney General and as a member of the Section Council (including Membership co-chair), I am thrilled to be a part of this new committee that will bring together practitioners in the burgeoning field of law related to the work of state Attorneys General. Since taking office, I have been amazed at the amount of interest in our work in both the private and public sector, and this will be a chance to come together to develop collegial relationships and to discuss ideas and challenges we share throughout the country.”

Ashley L. Taylor, Jr. -

“State Attorneys General have established themselves as the epicenter of leading enforcement actions. Because of this trend, it is important to develop a forum for practitioners to share best practices and for in-house counsel to share their experiences. The ABA has a long tradition of developing such venues and is recognized for high quality educational legal programs.”

Anthony Majestro –

“Our State Attorney Generals stand at the forefront of many of the critical legal issues facing our country. I am confident that this new committee can help our Attorney Generals and the private attorneys who work with them or defend companies in actions or investigations brought by their offices.”
