Much more than law.

The Government Legal Department is unlike any private practice in the country. Our work touches almost every facet of UK public life – from healthcare and national security to the environment and the economy.

We’re the government’s principal legal advisors. Our expertise supports the government on the development, design and implementation of government policies and decisions. We also represent the government in court.

Whatever level you join us at, we can offer unique and high-profile work, outstanding career development, and the satisfaction that comes from a far-reaching role in the life of the nation.
