AG-Elect Schneiderman: Now Hiring

Eric Schneiderman, the man who will succeed Andrew Cuomo as New York’s Attorney General come January, says he’s seeking to build on the work of his predecessors rather than attempting a “reinvention” of the office.

At an announcement held at the NYU Law School Monday, Schneiderman said his transition committee’s main mission is to recruit top legal talent to make the office of the attorney general the “best public interest law firm in the nation,” and to advise him on policy.

The committee is chaired by Harlan Levy, a lawyer who is also chair of the Council on Criminal Justice of the New York City Bar Association, with three honorary co-chairs: former New York Attorney General Robert Abrams, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Zachary Carter and Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

Schneiderman says the transition process will probably result in “a couple of dozen” new hires. He says anyone interested in working for the NY AG office can apply through his Web site, where the full list of the 71-member transition team is also posted.
