Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
The Department of Justice was established as a result of administrative change in 1996. In addition to the functions transferred from its predecessor agency, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General, the Department received the Office of Consumer Affairs, the Public Trust Office and functions relating to juvenile justice, which had previously been administered by the Department of Family and Community Services Department.

FUNCTIONS:
The Department of Justice was responsible for the administration of a variety of Acts of Parliament and for the development and implementation of legislation and policy, i.e. it provided and maintaianed the machinery for the administration of justice in the State of Queensland.

In addition to its traditional core functions such as courts' administration and maintenance of the State legal system, the Department of Justice was responsible for an increasing scope of activities: consumer affairs, legal advice and services to government (legal aid), law reform, the conduct of elections and referendums, and company law administration.
