The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) provides legal advice and support to the Attorney General and the Solicitor General (the Law Officers) who give legal advice to government. The AGO helps the Law Officers perform other duties in the public interest, such as looking at sentences which may be too low.
We are not able to provide legal advice to members of the public or businesses.
We strive to answer all correspondence that falls within the remit of the AGO within 20 days. However, we are unable to reply to matters that do not fall within the responsibility of the AGO.
Correspondence that falls within the remit of the AGO will be stored in digital form only. Correspondence which falls outside the remit of the AGO will not be retained. The AGO will not keep hard copies of any material sent to us and we are unable to return them to the sender. Please ensure you only send copy material to us.
