The Evolution of State Attorneys General

Regulatory Oversight Podcast


In this episode of Regulatory Oversight, Ashley Taylor welcomes Professor Paul Nolette from Marquette University to discuss the evolution of state attorneys general and how their roles in government have shifted over the years.

Over time, we have seen the role of attorney general shift from being a capstone to one’s career to more of a stepping stone for politicians. With this change, we also have seen a change in how state AGs approach federal government, federal government regulatory policies, and statutory policies — ultimately impacting numerous industries over the years.

Additionally, Ashley and Professor Nolette discuss what attracted him to study state AGs and the major developments he has seen with multistate settlements throughout his career as a professor and through his involvement with the National Association of Attorney General.
