The New South Wales Department of Attorney General and Justice, a department of the New South Wales Government, is responsibile for the administration and development of a just and equitable legal system of courts, tribunals, laws and other mechanisms that further the principles of justice in New South Wales.
The department assists the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, currently Greg Smith, the first law officer of New South Wales.
The department's headquarters are located in the Justice Precinct Office, part of the Parramatta Justice Precinct in Parramatta, in western Sydney. The department's 4,000 staff are located across New South Wales.
The re-organisation of the legal system of Colonial New South Wales led to the creation of the Attorney-General, an appointed law officer. Following the creation of self-government in 1856, the position of Attorney-General became an officer appointed by the Government of the day from within the membership of the Parliament of New South Wales.
In 1901, the Department of Attorney General and the Department of Justice were amalgamated into the Department of the Attorney General and Justice. In 1911, two separate branches of the Department were established, later called divisions which continued until the 1970s. Responsibility for police and corrective services were removed from the Department in the 1970s; and by 1991 the Department of Courts Administration was split out of the Department. Some four years later, the two Departments were merged and the Justice portfolio re-established in 2009 through the creation of the Department of Justice and Attorney General.
