In the nationally-renowned New York State Office of the Attorney General (OAG), students work in the Civil Rights, Labor, Environmental Protection, Tobacco Compliance, and Charities Bureaus of the OAG’s Social Justice Division to protect New Yorkers’ legal rights. They assist with affirmative litigation and public enforcement, developing skills in subpoena drafting, fact discovery and depositions, motion practice and/or oral argument. Participants take a seminar taught by two seasoned bureau chiefs, which features lectures, workshops, simulations, and guest speakers. The course explores such issues as developing cooperative relationships with stakeholders, jurisdictional barriers to public enforcement such as pre-emption, educating the public through the media, deciding the appropriate remedies to seek against private individuals and companies, and the ethics of public-sector work.
