Legal Department is one of the twenty five Departments of the Government, headed by the Secretary and Remembrancer of Legal Affairs, who is normally a judicial officer from the cadre of District Judge, appointed as such on deputation basis. Though a very small Department as compared to other Departments of the Government, Legal Department plays a very important role in the administration of justice in the State. Earlier the work of Legislative drafting and vetting of Bills etc. was also being undertaken in the Legal Department. However, with the increase in the workload, the Government created a separate Department called Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Department in the year 1992 for the said purpose.
