The Mason Attorneys General Education Program, offered by the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University, is modeled after the LEC’s highly regarded Mason Judicial Education Program. Founded in 2009, the AGEP delivers economic and public policy educational programming to state attorneys general and their staff attorneys from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories.
The AGEP provides a nonpartisan forum that allows participants with diverse perspectives to engage with experts and each other in exploring the key issues encountered during the course of their public service. These issues, which participants most often approach from the litigation perspective, are thoroughly examined and analyzed for their regulatory and public policy implications. The guidance of a bipartisan Advisory Board, made up of current and former attorneys general from around the nation, helps ensure the AGEP’s programming is balanced, timely, rigorous and of the highest quality.
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.
