The National Attorneys General Training & Research Institute
National Training on Representation of State Agencies
Representing state agencies is a core function of state attorneys general, and there are many aspects to that representation. The relationship between the attorney general’s office and the client agency can be complicated by state constitutional or statutory law or custom. This training addresses issues faced by state agency attorneys, including contracting and procurement, open meeting and open records counseling, the role of the lawyer in administrative proceedings as legal adviser and/or administrative prosecutor; the use of alternative dispute resolution, the attorney/client relationship and ethical considerations of a public law practice, including possible divergence of interests between the agency and the attorney general’s office.
This course is open to members of the attorney general community and will be valuable to newer attorneys with less than 5 years pf experience.
