In May 2000, former Attorney General John F. Farmer, Jr. announced the establishment of the New Jersey Attorney General’s Advocacy Institute to enhance the administration of justice in the State, and ensure the attorneys representing governmental entities maintain the highest degree of professionalism. Since then, the Advocacy Institute has endeavored to provide a broad range of programs to address the needs of public sector attorneys, including deputies attorney general, assistant prosecutors, municipal prosecutors and those who represent other governmental entities. Under the stewardship of its first Director, former Assistant Attorney General Andrew J. Rossner, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Advocacy Institute developed into one of the finest providers of professional development programs in the nation.

The Advocacy Institute today offers a curriculum practical skills programs and topical presentations on the diverse areas of the law in which public sector attorneys practice. Moreover, the Advocacy Institute serves as a clearing house for Best Practices, and is responsible for producing handbooks and practice manuals for use within the Department of Law & Public Safety.

The Advocacy Institute primarily offers programs in Trenton and Newark, depending on the type of program being offered, and facility availability. The Advocacy Institute is an accredited New Jersey and Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) provider.
