About Alabama Attorney General
Luther Strange was re-elected Alabama's 49th Attorney General on November 4, 2014. As Attorney General, Strange has made protecting Alabama’s citizens his first priority. Attorney General Strange is a national leader in advancing the causes of federalism and limited government by combatting the increasing unconstitutional overreach of the federal government and its assault on individual liberty. Strange serves on the Executive Committee of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) and is currently the chairman of the Southern Region of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG).
Attorney General Strange serves as Coordinating Counsel for the Gulf States in the historic Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill litigation in New Orleans, where he has been actively involved in trying the case against BP and the other defendants. As the state’s chief law enforcement officer, the Attorney General works with Alabama’s district attorneys and law enforcement personnel to investigate and prosecute crimes throughout the state. He has partnered with the legislature to pass measures to improve school safety, to strengthen laws against elder abuse, and to deter and punish rural theft. He has also aggressively sought to hold violators of the public trust accountable, and he has taken steps to bring more transparency to state government.
Attorney General Strange was raised in Sylacauga and Homewood, Alabama. Active in sports and scouting, he became an Eagle Scout at age 13, and then attended Tulane University on a basketball scholarship. After receiving his undergraduate degree at Tulane, Strange ventured to the North Sea where he worked as a merchant marine to help pay his way through law school at Tulane. Committed to passing on the lessons he learned growing up in Alabama, the Attorney General is passionate about encouraging young people in Alabama to become involved in public service and the political process.
Prior to his first election as Attorney General in 2010, Strange earned the reputation as one of Alabama’s finest lawyers and frequently advised companies on growth and expansion opportunities in the state. As Attorney General, he continues to promote Alabama’s skilled workforce and business-friendly environment as he travels to recruit new industry and jobs to our state.
