Are you a part of the U.S. Department of Justice?
No. NAAG is not a federal agency and it is not a part of the U.S. Department of Justice. However, in many areas traditionally considered the exclusive responsibility of the federal government, the Attorneys General now share enforcement authority. A major trend of the last several years has been the increasingly cooperative working relationships the Attorneys General have forged with their federal counterparts, particularly in the areas of trade regulation, environmental enforcement and criminal justice.
