About us

The Attorney-General’s Department delivers programs and policies to maintain and improve Australia’s law and justice framework, strengthen our national security and emergency management, and provide support for arts and culture.

Our department is the central policy and coordinating element of the Attorney-General's portfolio, for which the Attorney-General and Minister for the Arts; and the Minister for Justice are responsible.

Our department is structured into three groups to effectively and efficiently deliver programs against strategic aims and broader portfolio objectives:

  • Strategic Policy and Coordination
  • Civil Justice and Legal Services
  • National Security and Criminal Justice.
