Description

Assistant Attorney General

Government Bureau/Division of Open Government

The Office of the Attorney General (AGO) is looking for a highly motivated attorney to serve as an Assistant Attorney General (AAG) working on open government matters.  The Division of Open Government is primarily responsible for statewide enforcement of the Open Meeting Law, G.L. c. 30A, § 18-25.  The Division provides training and guidance on the law's requirements and investigates and resolves complaints alleging violations of the Open Meeting Law, which requires transparency in the discussions on which public policy is based.  The Division also handles certain enforcement duties under the Public Records Law, G.L. c. 66, § 10.

Primary Duties:  The AAG will be responsible for investigating Open Meeting Law complaints alleging violations of the Open Meeting Law and for drafting formal and informal determination letters resolving those matters.  In addition, the AAG will be responsible for conducting online and in-person Open Meeting Law trainings for public body members and responding to telephone and email requests for guidance on the Open Meeting Law’s requirements.  The AAG will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with the Public Records Law following referrals from the Supervisor of Public Records.  The AAG may independently defend lawsuits challenging the Division’s interpretations of the Open Meeting Law and bring affirmative litigation to compel compliance with the Public Records Law.

Position Type:  Full-Time, Exempt

Salary:  Salary is based on JD year and experience

Application Process:  To apply for this position, visit the AGO website's jobs portal at www.mass.gov/ago/employment to register and create a profile, upload your cover letter and resume, and submit an application.  Candidates may only apply directly using the AGO’s online Employment and Recruitment jobs portal.
