Our goal is to be valued as leaders in developing and delivering justice services, policy and reforms that are significant and sustainable.

Our diverse range of services includes:

  • Administering the State's courts and tribunals
  • Helping victims of crime
  • Providing legal services to Government and legislative drafting to Parliament
  • Translating Government policy into laws that are easily understood
  • Providing services to advance the best interests and rights of people with decision-making disabilities
  • Providing trustee services
  • Registering births, deaths and marriages
  • Supporting various review boards.

In addition, a number of our services are linked within a broader 'justice system', comprising a network of public sector agencies, communities and individuals who may be affected by the creation, administration or enforcement of civil and criminal justice in Western Australia.

We are the agency principally responsible for assisting the Attorney General in developing and implementing government policy and the administration and/or compliance with approximately 200 Acts.
