Legal service expenditure

The Legal Services Directions 2017 require agencies to report expenditure on legal services.

These directions are not intended to cover the handling of criminal prosecutions and related proceedings (see General Note 4 to the Directions). Therefore, our report relates to our administrative activities only.

Our total expenditure on legal services (excluding the handling of criminal prosecutions and related proceedings) during 2019–20 was $64,695 (excluding GST). Further details are in the following table. This is a statement of legal services expenditure published in compliance with paragraph 11.1(ba) of the Legal Services Directions 2017.
