History

On 1 February 2006, the Department of Justice was abolished. The functions of the department passed to two newly formed departments: the Department of the Attorney General and the Department of Corrective Services.

The Department of the Attorney General took over the functions encompassing: Aboriginal Policy and Services; the Courts division; the Office of the Public Advocate; the Parliamentary Counsel's Office; the Public Trust Office; the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages and the State Solicitor's Office.

Under the McGowan Government, the Department of the Attorney General was merged with the Department of Corrective Services on 1 July 2017 to become the Department of Justice.
