Department of Attorney-General and Justice
Government department responsible for administering the courts, tribunals, laws and justice programs of the State. The New South Wales Department of Attorney General and of Justice was formed in 1901. Both branches were responsible for the various Courts and Sessions, however the Justice branch was responsible for the coroner. This responsibility went largely unchanged for sixty years, when responsibilities were reallocated in 1975. The department was revised to the Attorney-General’s Department in 1984.
