About the Attorney General’s Chambers

The Attorney General of the Solomon Islands is the Principal Legal Adviser to the Government. The position is established under the Solomon Islands Constitution (Section 42) and is sometimes referred to as a Constitutional Office or Post.

Unlike many other countries or legal jurisdictions, the Attorney General of the Solomon Islands is a public officer and is not a Politician or Minister of the Crown.

The Attorney General’s Chambers has two divisions. The Litigation Division is headed by the Solicitor General who is responsible for representing the Government in court. The other division is the Legislative Drafting Division headed by the Legal Draftsperson. This division is responsible for drafting new laws or amendments to existing ones.
