The first female AG of Massachusetts discusses the economy, business and technology, and the upcoming Women, Influence and Power in Law event.

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, announced her run for governor in September.

The race for governor of Massachusetts is more than a year away, but it is already shaping up to be a heated battle. One candidate who has thrown her hat into the ring is the Bay State’s Attorney General Martha Coakley.

Coakley was elected as Massachusetts’ attorney general in 2006, becoming the first woman to serve in that position in the Bay State. She was re-elected in 2010, and continues to work on behalf of the people of the Bay State. In advance of the Women, Influence and Power in Law event, which kicks off on Oct. 2 in Washington, D.C., InsideCounsel had a chance to speak with AG Coakley about her time in office as well as her ambitions to serve as the governor of Massachusetts.
