INTRODUCTION

The Legal Affairs (LA) is a Special Unit within HIA which is tasked with various duties that centre on but is not limited to making sure there are no issues between staff and everyone’s dignity is protected and their rights respected. There are primarily TWO General Divisions in Legal Affairs -ATTORNEYS & MARSHAL SERVICES - of which you can only be a member of ONE division at any given time. You are however allowed to concurrently hold memberships in multiple Special Divisions. Special Division memberships are only available to full LA members that meet membership requirements.

 

ATTORNEYS (Headed by the Attorney General)

Attorneys are Legal Representatives who are allowed to stand in court on behalf of their client(s). Attorneys ensure that the interest of the client is well-cared for. Attorneys also can ultimately become personal advisors to HIA and other staff. In a case, Attorneys can choose to be either a Prosecution or a Defense Attorney as explained below.

A) Defence Attorney

The defence team within LA works to help the accused (“defendant”) while facing any and all charges that may have been brought against him/her. They aim to prove the defendant’s innocence by way of screenshots and witness testimony.

The Justice Department will appoint a defence to be the defendant’s counsel. The appointed attorney will then meet with the defendant to go over the details of the case to seek out any mitigating and aggravating circumstances which led to the behaviour of the defendant that can be put forward by the defence at trial.

B) Prosecution Attorney

It is the prosecution’s role to work with the person pressing charges (“plaintiff”) to prove that the defendant did indeed do what they are being accused of. They will aim to use the evidence provided at trial to prove that the defendant is guilty.

As with defence, the prosecutor will be appointed by the Justice Department member(s) handling the case and will then meet with the plaintiff to help build their case against the defendant. This will be done by using the evidence available, e.g., witness statements, screenshots, etc.

General duties of Attorneys:

- Legal representatives of HIA.
- General & personal LEGAL advisers to staff members and groups (for example, a group of staff or a special unit).

 

MARSHAL SERVICES (Headed by the Chief of Marshals)

Marshals are members of the Legal Affairs Unit who handle complaints and disciplinary issues. Marshals investigate cases and collect evidence. They also have the authority to interrogate any member of the HIA. If needed, members of the Marshal Services may also detain HIA staff. The Marshal Services are responsible for making sure that all the evidence needed is available for trial, be it witness testimony, screenshot evidence, or chat log evidence. Furthermore, they may serve as Court officers (Bailiff) and offer personal service to Legal Affairs Judges.

General duties of Marshals:

- Law enforcement in HIA.

- Protecting the basic rights of every HIA employee.

- Serving as Court officers (Bailiffs) during trials.

- Reviewing disciplinaries/firings and removing invalid logs.

- Investigating issues and staff.

- Breaking up fights & arguments.

 

SPECIAL DIVISION - JUSTICE DEPARTMENT (Lead by the Tribunal Executive)

The Justice Department is made up of the Tribunal Executive and Legal Affairs leadership, which includes all LA Heads (“LAiC”) as well as Non-Head Division Leaders. Justice Department members are court officials. They are tasked with handling the flow of cases by voting to accept/deny a case based on validity of the lawsuit. They are highly specialised and unbiased LA members who have earned their spot from their contribution and commitment to LA. The Justice Department is lead by its Division Leader, the Tribunal Executive, who leads with the approval and guidance of the Director(s) of Legal Affairs. As such, all Justice Department members are to defer to the authority of the Tribunal Executive regardless of their official LA or HIA rank. Furthermore, Justice Department members take part in arranging recording of trials and other miscellaneous matters.

 

SPECIAL DIVISION - JUDGES (Headed by the Chief Justice)

Judges oversee the whole court process and witness any out-of-court settlements to make sure all parties are being fairly punished or compensated. During a court case they will watch over the court proceedings to ensure all parties get a fair trial. They also handle the punishments and/or compensation awarded after a verdict by the presiding judge/jury has been made. They are chosen by the HIA Chief Justice & his/her Deputy. Judges also Participate in reviewing & improving the Code of Conduct.

 

HEAD ADMINISTRATION

Director & Co-Director 

The ultimate representative of the Legal Affairs Special Unit. He/She oversees all LA divisions and makes sure they are running smoothly. The Director is also designated as the Commander-in-Chief of the Marshal Services Division. The Co-Director rank is only in-use for command changes; the rank is immediately dissolved upon successful handover from one Director to the next.

Chief Justice & Deputy Chief Justice

The Chief Justice is the most senior position in the Court. They are nominated by the Attorney General, Chief of Marshals and Tribunal Executive with the approval of the Director of Legal Affairs Unit. The Chief Justice should have served as a judge and an Attorney/Marshal completing tasks 1-5 and the Judges Course. They can be removed from their position through a vote of 'no-confidence' reaching 3/4 majority from the Attorney General, Chief of Marshals, Tribunal Executive and/or Director of Legal Affairs.
