The Attorney General's Office, Ministry of Justice, Human Rights and Institutional Reforms of Mauritius provides legal and legislative drafting services to the government of Mauritius. The Attorney General's Office interacts with the Legislature (National Assembly), Judiciary (Courts) and the Executive (Government/Ministries) branches, as well as provides assistance to the courts based on the powers vested in the office.[1][2]

In most instances, the Attorney General simultaneously serves as the Minister of Justice (the titles mainly pronounced in articles and sources issued after 2010). The Attorney General, who should be a barrister, is the principal legal adviser to the government and holds the office of a minister. The Attorney General's Office is also responsible for the vetting of all contracts or agreements of which the government is a party, including international agreements, treaties or conventions.
