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.
Given the current situation with Covid-19 we unfortunately cannot guarantee that hard copy post will be processed and responded to in a timely manner. Where possible, all correspondence, including ULS requests, should be sent via email. You can also contact us by telephone on the correspondence number above. We apologise for this change in practice.
We strive to answer all electronic 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.
