About Us

The Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) is the office of the Attorney General of Malaysia. It  started  with the  provenance of the Attorney General as the country’s chief law officer, and later AGC was recognised as a formal government institution. In 1948, the various functions of legal advice afforded to the then colonial government were consolidated as a federal department under the provisions of the Federation of Malaya Agreement, 1948. Later in 1951, the AGC (then known as the Department of Law) was classified as a Ministry and was held responsible for all legal matters involving the Government. Listed below are the placements of AGC over the years from Independence until today:

1957 : Ministry of Home Affairs and Justice

1964 : Ministry of Home Affairs and Justice
