A Conversation with
North Carolina Attorney General

Josh Stein (JD/MPP '95)

with an Introduction by Divonne Smoyer (JD ’95)



Please join the Harvard Law School Association of Washington, DC, on Thursday, May 9, for a conversation with North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein (JD/MPP '95) on topics of national and state interest, including reforming the criminal justice system, protecting consumers, and dealing with opioid abuse. 

State attorneys general are one of a handful of state constitutional executive officials, acting as the states’ chief legal officers. As such, attorneys general serve as counselors to state government agencies and legislatures, and as representatives of the public. AGs are involved in a variety of legal and policy matters on behalf of their states, including antitrust, consumer protection, regulation of charities and the environment, health care, labor laws and criminal justice reform.  Decisions that AGs make in these and other areas can have national consequences and impact citizens across state lines.

Josh Stein was sworn in as North Carolina’s Attorney General in 2017. Before serving as AG, Stein served as a state senator and as a senior deputy AG in the North Carolina Department of Justice. Throughout his tenure, AG Stein has focused on protecting North Carolina families from crime and consumer fraud. As head of the North Carolina Department of Justice, AG Stein is responsible for representing North Carolina state agencies, providing legal advice to the executive and legislative branches, prosecuting criminal appeals and instituting legal proceedings on behalf of the State and its citizens on matters in the public interest.
