This year’s meeting featured a talk by Massachusetts State Solicitor Peter Sacks. See a flier for the event here.
In July 2013, the Attorney General created the Office of State Solicitor to oversee the Commonwealth’s appellate advocacy efforts. The State Solicitor’s primary role is to develop appellate strategy, assist with selected appeals, ensure consistent appellate positions, as well as advise the Attorney General regarding multi-state amicus briefs.
Peter Sacks joined the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office in 1988. In 1995, he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Government Bureau, then served as Chief of the Government Bureau from 1998-99 and again from 2009-2010. Sacks is a graduate of Harvard Law School and clerked for the Honorable Frank Coffin, U.S. Circuit Judge for the First Circuit, and the Honorable Edward Gignoux, U.S. District Judge.
