About Attorney-General's Department
The Attorney-General's Department delivers programs and policies to maintain and improve Australia's law and justice framework, and to facilitate jobs growth through policies that promote fair, productive, flexible and safe workplaces. Through the Australian Government Solicitor, we also provide legal services to the Commonwealth, including legal advice and representation.
Our department is the central policy and coordinating element of the Attorney-General's portfolio.
Our department is structured into five groups:
• Australian Government Solicitor
• Legal Services and Families
• Integrity and International
• Industrial Relations
• Enabling Services.
The department operates in a diverse and complex environment to address challenging issues. We have a highly-skilled and engaged workforce which includes practitioners in policy development and implementation and program administration. The department also has a large contingent of practicing lawyers, particularly within the Australian Government Solicitor.
The department is committed to having a flexible and inclusive workplace and recognises and values the diversity of the wider Australia community. We encourage and welcome applications from people with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, LGBTIQ+ people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and mature age people.
