The Role of Attorney General

The Office of the Attorney General provides legal representation to the State of Idaho. The Attorney General and his deputies represent numerous state agencies and offices. Examples include the Department of Labor, Idaho State Police and the Secretary of State. By law, the office does not provide legal representation to individual citizens.

These duties are detailed in Article 4, Sections 1, 17, and 18 of the Idaho Constitution and are further defined in Idaho Code §§ 67-1401 – 1409.
