The role of the Attorney-General in the legal system

In our legal system, judges and magistrates are independent of Ministers and Members of Parliament. That independence is very important. Parliament makes the law through Acts and Regulations and the judges and magistrates apply the law to the cases that come before them. They make their decisions according to how the law relates to the circumstances of each case.

The Attorney-General is therefore unable to comment on matters presented in court or on judicial decisions.
