Abstract: This paper is concerned with duality theories for metabelian (2-step nilpotent) Lie algebras. A duality theory associates to each metabelian Lie algebra N with cod $ {N^2} = g$, another such algebra $ {N_D}$ satisfying $ {({N_D})_D} \cong N,{N_1} \cong {N_2}$ if and only if $ {({N_1})_D} \cong {({N_2})_D}$, and if $ \dim \,N = g + p$ then $ \dim \,{N_D} = g + (_2^g) - p$. The obvious benefit of such a theory lies in its reduction of the classification problem.
