State Attorneys General often approach the increasingly broad array of issues they encounter from a litigaiton perspective despite the significant regulatory and public policy implications of their decisions.
The Mason Attorneys General Education Program offers broad-based programs focused on the economic and public policy issues that these policymakers encounter in the course of their public service. The AGEP provides a common forum where this important policy constituency may engage with experts and colleagues in identifying and analyzing key issues from diverse perspectives.
With the advice of a bipartisan Advisory Board, the AGEP develops and offers timely, rigorous, and balanced programs. AGs and staff from the 50 states, DC, and the US territories are invited.
AGEP courses are taught by prominent academic experts, practitioners and government officials representing a variety of perspectives. All program participants must commit to completing pre-session reading assignments, contributing to class discussions and attending all sessions. Conference presentations are recorded and made available online, along with course materials, so that those who cannot attend in person can take advantage of the information presented.
