The San Joaquin Provincial Legislatura, officially the Provincial Legislature of San Joaquin, is the provincial legislature for the province of San Joaquin. It is a bicameral legislature consisting of two chambers; the Provincial Senate and the House of Assembly. The legislature has a total of 160 seats with the Senate having 50 and the House of Assembly having 110 seats since 2004 as part of the latest constitutional amendment and subsequent legislative reformation. As of 2018, both chambers are controlled by the Democratic-Republicans in a coalition with the Social Democrats and the Green Party. Like most provinces in Sierra, San Joaquin's legislature is based off of the Anglo-American federalist model with two chambers and each lead by a majority leader, though the position of Leader of the Provincial Opposition does exist in the House of Assembly.

Since the 2004 amendment to the Constitution of San Joaquin, the province holds legislative elections for the legislature once every four years on October with the recent being on October 16, 2018 and each session will last four years. The voting system for the legislature varies with the Senate using first-past-the-post and the House of Assembly using a system of party-list representation. Redistricting is left up to the legislature with the Legislative District Committee being the main body responsible for drawing San Joaquin's legislative and parliamentary districts. The issue of redistricting has been a long-standing controversy due to the province being infamous for gerrymandering which has resulted in legal cases that have reached the provincial supreme court. The legislature has been called the most controversial legislature in Sierra due to gerrymandering, polarization, and high levels of partisanship that have plagued the province's legislative process for years. Many analysts have also pointed out the legislature's reluctance to address the issue of dissident republicanism and radical monarchism.
