Welcome to the
Attorney General's Ministry

Welcome to our website! Our Team at the Attorney General’s Ministry worked very hard in preparing the information being shared with you.  It is my hope that you will find it helpful in orienting you as to the work done at our Ministry. It is also my hope that you will find it useful to access the Laws of Belize, helpful information regarding our associated units, and publications by our Team.

The Attorney General’s Ministry has four units: (1) The Litigation Unit which handles all government litigation, (2) The Legislative Drafting Unit which drafts all legislative instruments enacted by the National Assembly or made by the Executive, (3) The Legal Advice Unit which provides legal advice to the Executive, and (4) The International Legal Affairs Unit which handles all mutual legal assistance offered to foreign states. These Units are all run by Crown Counsel who are trained attorneys at law dedicated to the public service and the business of governance.

We also have other government units that we manage such as the Marriage Registry, the Vital Statistics Unit, and the Belize Intellectual Property Office, and we have provided helpful links to these units as well.

Our Team takes great pride in the work performed in the public service and we aspire to offer the best professional service to the government and people of Belize. We aspire to embrace technology and innovation to make our work and the service rendered more efficient and transparent.

I invite you to explore our website and please feel free to contact us with any queries and suggestions for improvement. I thank you.
