Key Activity 1: Legal services and policy advice

We deliver high-quality legal services, provide high-quality policy advice and oversee the effective and efficient provision of legal services to the Australian Government and its entities, in order to ensure that decisions are based in law, strengthen policy outcomes and manage legal risk. We represent the Australian Government in constitutional and other disputes and assist it in resolving and managing significant and sensitive matters. We manage international dispute resolution on behalf of the Australian Government.

This key activity is outward-facing and focuses on the legal and policy work we do to support the Attorney-General as the First Law Officer and chief legal adviser to Cabinet, and to advise and assist other Australian Government entities.
