AGS is the Commonwealth’s central legal services provider.
We are recognised as a centre of excellence and expertise in areas of law of importance to the Commonwealth and in managing complex, systemic and precedential issues for the Commonwealth.
As part of government we are dedicated to the public interest, working in collaboration with our in-house legal colleagues across the APS and never working against the interests of the Commonwealth.
AGS is the custodian of the Commonwealth's legal memory bringing to bear the decades of experience and knowledge in government legal issues.
In recognition of the important role that AGS plays it has never been easier to work with AGS. Australian Government agencies can use AGS for any legal work at any time.
