Employment Status
Full Time


The Office of the Minnesota Attorney General seeks an attorney to join the Office’s Charities Division, which regulates, supervises, and enforces Minnesota charitable solicitation, charitable trusts, and nonprofit laws.  The Charities Division protects Minnesota donors from deception and ensures that charitable assets are used to benefit the public.  Charities Division attorneys have a broad range of responsibilities and opportunities to use their discretion to achieve these goals, including reviewing regulatory filings to ensure compliance with the law, working with entities to achieve voluntary compliance, conducting formal and informal investigations into potential violations, engaging in non-litigation enforcement efforts such as voluntary settlements; and bringing enforcement lawsuits on behalf of the Attorney General.  Attorneys work closely with financial analysts in investigating and developing cases, but a financial background is not required for Assistant Attorneys General.  Attorneys also have the opportunity to engage in community outreach and trainings to educate the public and charities and help prevent future violations.

Successful Charities Division attorneys evidence a strong desire to advocate for and protect the public interest.  Litigation experience (at least 5 years) and an ability to handle a varied workload with flexibility and judgment are also desired.  The Charities Division works directly on behalf of the Attorney General, and the work is uniquely rewarding and fundamental in helping Minnesotans afford their lives and live with dignity and respect.

Applications.  Priority applications by September 9th, but we will continue to accept applications until the position has been filled. Please submit a cover letter and resume that includes relevant experience and academic credentials to:
