This is an exciting opportunity to lead the Office of the Kansas Attorney General’s Legal Oversight and Government Counsel (LOGiC) section. Maturity, efficiency and a willingness to help others are essential to this position. The First Assistant Attorney General will serve as the first-line supervisor for a team of about eight attorneys, plus support staff, providing general-counsel services to various agencies, boards and commissions throughout Kansas. In addition to providing legal advice on personnel matters and open-government compliance, this role often involves attending board/commission committee meetings, assisting boards in administrative hearings, and drafting orders as necessary. LOGiC attorneys also review and approve all of the state’s regulations and many State bonds, contracts, property transactions, and inter-local agreements, and the First Assistant Attorney General will oversee and participate in legality review.

LOGiC attorneys have widely varied practices, and successful performance in the position requires the ability to learn and understand not only employment, open-government, and state finance law but also the unique statutory and regulatory authorities that apply to our client agencies.
