Who We Are
ABOUT | Attorney General Alliance (AGA)
Based in the United States, the Attorney General Alliance – AGA began as a bipartisan group comprising chief legal officers of 15 western states and three Pacific territories. The Attorney General Alliance – AGA has expanded beyond its original regional designation to count all US states as participants, with the ability to draw on the expertise and involvement of over 3000 legal professionals consisting of attorneys general, prosecutors, law enforcement officers and subject matter experts.
Improving the Quality of Legal Services
AGA’s primary function is to provide a forum for legal officers to cultivate knowledge, co-operate on issues of legal concerns and coordinate actions which improve the quality of legal services available to different institutions.
Promoting the Rule of Law & International Cooperation
The Attorney General Alliance – AGA works ceaselessly to promote the rule of law and foster international cooperation in transnational criminal matters.
AGA provides and supports:
Challenging Cross-Border Crime
Transnational crimes, such as human trafficking, trafficking in firearms, drug trafficking, money laundering, child pornography, internet crimes, and corruption do not respect borders, laws, or people. Addressing these crimes comprehensively, swiftly, and effectively is required to give meaning to justice, the rule of law and respect for human rights.
