Join Tisch College for a discussion with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey on state and national politics, critical issues facing the Commonwealth, and what it’s like to take the President to court. Since 2015, Healey has served as the Massachusetts Attorney General, leading fights to uphold the state’s existing assault weapons ban, to overturn the Trump Administration’s controversial immigration policies, and to defend net neutrality protections. Before being elected Attorney General, Healey helped lead the Attorney General’s Office under Martha Coakley, first as Chief of the Civil Rights Division and then as director of the Public Protection & Advocacy Bureau and the Business & Labor Bureau. A prosecutor in Middlesex County and a litigation partner at WilmerHale for several years, Healey also spent two years as a 5’4” starting point guard on a professional basketball team in Austria after graduating from Harvard College and before attending law school at Northeastern University. She is the first openly gay Attorney General in the United States.
