Ellen Rosenblum was elected Oregon's 16th Attorney General in November, 2012. She is the first woman to serve as Oregon Attorney General. Ellen's priorities as Attorney General include advocating for and protecting Oregon's most vulnerable, including especially our families and children, our seniors, Oregonians whose first language is not English, and students who have incurred significant education-related debt. She is committed to continuing the AG's office long time practice of assisting district attorneys in prosecuting crime and has made internet and other crimes against children her highest priority. Ellen previously served in private practice, as a federal prosecutor, and as a state trial and appellate court judge. She has been active in local and national organizations of lawyers, judges and attorneys general and currently co-chairs the American Bar Association's only committee devoted exclusively to state AG issues.
