The Attorney General is Elected by TISC
The TISL Constitution mirrors the Tennessee Constitution in providing that the Attorney General is elected by the Supreme Court.
In each case, the Court has no oversight once the AG is elected, giving the Attorney General autonomy as the chief legal officer.
For the position of TISL Attorney General, the Court prefers applicants who have participated in AMC3 and who have taken at least one undergraduate law class.
