  • July 29 at 2:00 p.m. ET | Politics and the Attorney General: How to Navigate as Leaders Across America's Divisions

    Open to the public

    Public officials and office holders are often confronted with challenges and crises requiring exemplary responses - sometimes described as the “exercise of statesmanship” - that bring results and outcomes that transcend politics and that have lasting beneficial consequences on public policy, public order, and the public good. It is generally understood that partisan politics and intractable political positions can preclude the effective exercise of this key attribute. This panel will explore the commonly understood definition of this trait for transcending politics and managing public affairs, historical examples, and practical applications as they relate to the unique duties and responsibilities of the attorney general.
