The Attorney General of Michigan is the fourth-ranking official in the U.S. state of Michigan and one of four great offices of state. The officeholder is elected statewide in the November general election alongside the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, members of the Senate and members of the House of Representatives.
Since the Michigan Constitution of 1963 was adopted, the attorney general has served a term of four years. The officeholder is also limited to two terms, for a total of eight possible years of service; ten possible years of service if the officeholder serves two full terms and less than half of one term as a replacement. Until 1950, the attorney general was appointed by the governor.
Michigan's current attorney general is Bill Schuette, who was elected in November, 2010, and sworn into office on January 1, 2011
The attorney general traditionally receives the courtesy title of The Honorable (abbreviated to Hon. or Hon'ble) for life.
