The Directorate complies with the Model Litigant Guidelines (the Guidelines) as required under the Law Officer Act 1992. The Guidelines apply to the conduct of civil claims, litigation, arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution processes involving the ACT Government agencies. The Guidelines require agencies to act honestly and fairly in handling claims and litigation brought by or against them.
The Directorate ensures compliance with the Guidelines by obtaining the legal advice and services of the ACT Government Solicitor for identification of potential non-compliance matters. No breaches of the Guidelines were identified in the reporting period.
