Crown Law provides legal services to the Queensland Government only. It does not provide legal advice directly to the public. Its lawyers advise and represent the government in all areas of law affecting the public sector and the State of Queensland on a fee-for-service basis.
Crown Law provides legal services to ministers, statutory authorities, government departments and agencies across a range of areas including:
- constitutional law
- native title
- corporate and commercial law
- property, planning and environment law
- intellectual property
- employment law
- coronial inquests
- commissions of inquiry.
While Crown Law is the government’s own legal unit, departments and agencies do not always have to use its services. Law firms in the private sector can also provide certain legal services to government. Crown Law operates as a self-funded business unit of the Department of Justice and Attorney-General.
