Is a New York Law School Implanting Activists in Attorneys General Offices?

A RealClearInvestigations report shows that a New York University School of Law program may be sending agenda-driven lawyers to attorneys general offices around the country.

According to the report, a program funded by Michael Bloomberg has sent legal fellows to attorney general offices in nine states and Washington, D.C. The story says the fellows, who are paid by Bloomberg’s program, are sent to “work solely to advance progressive climate change policy” under terms of the arrangement.

U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform Executive Vice President Harold Kim said “The public’s expectation is that a state’s chief law enforcement official acts in an unbiased and objective manner. Regardless of the underlying issue, when political interest groups participate in embedding paid staff in a state attorney general’s office, that credibility is called into question.”
