  • How to use the Records
    Researchers will need to know the approximate date that a particular opinion was sought from the Crown Solicitor's Office.

    Each volume is self indexing. Until 1934 each volume has index at the front which indicates a particular page number for the opinion provided. Opinions provided for government agencies also include a brief precis of the subject of the opinion.

    In May 1934 the system was altered slightly. At the front of each volume is a "Guide to Indices" which is basically an index of agencies. Each of the agencies are listed alphabetically with a particular page number. For instance the Department of Agriculture is on page 1. When you go to page 1 all of the opinions sought by the Department of Agriculture are listed. Included is the page reference and a brief precis of the subject matter of the opinion.

  • Function / Content
    This series was created by the Crown Solicitor's Office (VA 667) as a record of opinions purveyed by them to other Government Bodies on matters pertaining to points of law.

    Each opinion is a copy of the letter forwarded to the client outlining the Crown Solicitor's response to the client's particular query.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The opinions are arranged in chronological order according to the date the opinion was prepared.
