Setting Professional Standards
The Department of Attorney General and Justice plays a key role in establishing and monitoring professional standards and regulating the legal profession.
This role includes providing a recourse to people who have experienced problems with a legal practitioner, reviewing the structure and regulation of the legal profession and approving and monitoring schemes that limit the civil liability of professional groups.
The Department also administers the various functions of the education of students-at-law and the admission of legal practitioners in NSW.
