The Attorney General of New Jerseymarker is a member of the executive cabinet of the state. The office is an appointed by the Governor of New Jersey and term limited. Under the provisions of the New Jersey State Constitution, the Attorney General serves a concurrent four-year term to the governor.

Although the conventional wisdom is that the Attorney General cannot be removed from office except "for cause" by the Governor or by way of legislative impeachment, a recent law review article argues that the Governor does not have the authority to remove the Attorney General "for cause," and this issue has not been tested.

It is fourth in the line of succession after the Speaker of the New Jersey General Assembly and President of the New Jersey Senate. When the first Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey takes office, it will become fifth in line. The Attorney General will also be ineligible to replace a vacated Lieutenant Governor.
