Department of Justice
The Department of Justice provides for the administration of civil and criminal law in the Empire. This is done primarily through the suggestion of legislation, Decree amendments and the Criminal Law Code.
The Attorney-General leads the Department of Justice; which also oversees the Agency of the Chief Public Prosecutor. The Department appoints the Chief Public Prosecutor from a pool of Licensed Legal Professionals.
From this pool of Licensed Legal Professionals the Department of Justice will suggest appointments to the Supreme Court, which are given to the Emperor and Autocrat for approval.
The Department manages the Legal Professional Licensing Policy and Bar Exam. Those seeking to undertake the Bar should be graduates in Imperial Law from the Imperial University as the questions are based on the Lehmarkian Legal System.

Agency of National Security
Director of National Security: Mr Dane Bozzoli
The Agency of National Security is a two fold Agency, charged with both law enforcement and defence of Lehmark. With the abolishment of the Department of Armed Forces as laid out in Imperial Decree LIV, most of that Department's responsibilities were transferred to the new Agency of National Security.
Crime in Lehmark and Civil Disputes are non-existent so there has been little need for a large law enforcement agency.
The Agency's most important responsibilities are ensuring the integrity and security of Lehmark’s borders during peace time, conducting the defence of Lehmark during times of conflict and maintaining civil law and order and security of the Citizens of Lehmark.
As the Imperial Guard of Lehmark double as a defence force during times of conflict, the Agency must ensure the training, drilling, ammunition control and weapon supply of the Imperial Guard of Lehmark.
The Emperor and Autocrat of Lehmark remains the Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Guard of Lehmark.
The Imperial Guard of Lehmark are charged with law enforcement and national defence and therefore cannot be used to conduct offensive military actions.
