State AGs' modern role

The Federalist Society has posted pointers to three papers (all PDF) on the role of modern state attorneys general:

* In "The Modern Role of State Attorneys General: A Renewed Activism", San Diego attorney Robert J. Gaglione critically discusses the shift towards an activist role, with particular attention to California;

* Then-AG Eliot Spitzer delivered these remarks to the National Press Club in defense of his enforcement campaigns;

* U.K. professor Firat Cengiz's paper for the Economic & Social Research Council, �The Role of State Attorneys General in U.S. Antitrust Policy� provides an overview of the office and its diverse powers.
