The Agency has, in recent years, intensified its efforts to educate the public on the role and function of the Administrator General's Department, and on the importance of making Wills as an essential component of proper estate planning.
Our public education drive has been largely facilitated by island-wide seminars hosted by Attorneys-at-Law employed to the Agency.
Realizing that the average cost of accessing legal services can be quite prohibitive, all our public relations activities are offered and done free of cost.
Our public relations activities usually includes:
- Our usual Seminars;
- Legal Fairs
- "Office for a day" programme.
In addition to our usual seminars, we have, staged Legal Fairs geared towards reaching a larger target audience, while assisting persons in writing their wills, among other services.
The Agency also partners with other government ministries and departments offering a wide range of services, thereby enabling customers access to all or most related services in one location.
Office for a day programme:
This programme was conceptualized in light of the fact that the Agency does not have the regional or affiliated offices, so clients are left with little or no option at present but to take a trip into Kingston to access our services.
The first parish/region that benefitted from this event was Montego Bay/Western Jamaica. The event was staged over two days and resulted in Attorneys-at-Law and Paralegals assisting existing clients with information and the processing of their administration matters with the Agency, as well as accepting documents from new clients.
We invite you to contact the Department as we believe the services we currently provide can be of benefit to your community, church and organization. We are only too happy to continue to serve you in providing customer service of the very highest standard.
