The Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG) is a bipartisan group, originally made up of 18 western states and territories. CWAG’s primary purpose is to provide the state Attorneys General with information that enhances their ability to serve as the top lawyers and chief law enforcement officers of their states.
CWAG’s primary focus in the U.S. is to provide a forum for member states and jurisdictions to cultivate knowledge, cooperate on concerns and coordinate actions which improve the quality of legal services available to members. CWAG meetings and conferences vary in focus, but always include important public policy discussions. These gatherings are attended by Attorneys General and their staff. CWAG’s communication and coordination of information and policy provide a vital bipartisan voice in discussions between federal and state officials.
