The Leadership Center for Attorney General Studies (LCAGS) strives to provide important information about each attorney general and their actions. The information provided by LCAGS is not a comprehensive view of each attorney general. Readers should not judge the qualifications of an attorney general based on a few selected actions but should consider the totality of an attorney general's service to their constituents.
