Rob McKenna is serving his second term as Washington's 17th Attorney General. As the state's chief legal officer, he directs roughly 470 attorneys and 680 professional staff providing legal services to state agencies, the Governor and Legislature. He has won all three of the cases he has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, defending voter-adopted laws on campaign finance reform, the top-two primary election system and the state public records law.
A national leader, Rob is 2011-12 President of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG). In addition to electing him president, his colleagues also honored him with the 2011 Kelley-Wyman Award for outstanding attorney general.
He earned his J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 1988, where he was a member of the Law Review. He earned a B.A. in Economics and a B.A. in International Studies, both with honors, from the University of Washington, where he was student body president and graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
