The Attorney General is the Chief Legal Officer of the Navajo Nation and supervises all programs and units of the Navajo Nation Department of Justice. The Department of Justice has four separately funded programs: the Office of the Attorney General (and its units), Navajo Hopi Legal Services, the Office of the Prosecutor, and the Juvenile Justice Program. The Chief Prosecutor administers the latter two programs.
Pursuant to 2 N.N.C. §§ 1961-1965, the Office of the Attorney General, and its various units, provide legal services to the three governmental branches of the Navajo Nation Government, including its chapters and entities, in matters in which the Navajo Nation government has an interest. The Attorney General also initiates and defends all litigation against the Navajo Nation and supervises all outside attorney contractors who assist the Nation with various cases.
