Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden

The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) will host its annual Spring Meeting, March 3-5, at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, D.C.

More than 40 Attorneys General from across the country will attend, as well as representatives from the ranks of trade as sociations, law firms, federal and state government officials and staff from other interested agencies and associations.

As one of the Association’s three national meetings held each year, the Spring Meeting allows Attorneys General to discuss a number of complex legal issues, including cybercrime, Internet safety for children, social networking websites, methamphetamine use, anti-counterfeiting and piracy initiatives, recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, federal legislation and other critical legal areas of interest.

Attorneys General are scheduled to meet with a number of key national figures, including U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and former U.S. Solicitors General Ted Olson and Walter Dellinger.

Other special guests include former Pennsylvania First Lady, Michele M. Ridge. As the wife of former Governor Tom Ridge and mother of two children, Ridge currently serves as the chair of an innovative project called Vision of Hope, launched by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape. The project is devoted to ending child sexual abuse. In addition, the Association has invited U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey and FBI Director Robert Mueller to discuss mutual law enforcement concerns.
