The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs is a governmental body of Nepal dealing with the management of the judicial administration, legal affairs and legislative activities.[1]

History[edit]

The Department of Law (कानून विभाग) was established in 1950 before being developed into a ministry in 1956. Two years later, the ministry's portfolio was adjusted for the first time, making it the Ministry of Government and Law (कानून तथा संसदीय प्रबन्ध मन्त्रालय). In 1961, it was again renamad into the Ministry of Law and Justice (कानून तथा न्याय मन्त्रालय). The term Parliamentary Affairs was added and dropped several times throughout the history of the ministry.[2]
