Legal Aid

Keeping up to date with legal aid changes

PUBLISHED November 7, 2013

Online package to be provided to help you prepare for 2 December 2013

We?re making online training available on the Justice website to prepare you for legal aid changes timetabled for Monday 2 December 2013.

The changes are subject to Parliamentary approval and follow the Government?s response on 5 September to the consultation 'Transforming Legal Aid: delivering a more credible and effective system'.

Full details of the training and how to access it will be provided in a news story in the LAA section of the Justice website. There will also be an email contact for training-related questions.

Giving you time to prepare

We want to make this training available as soon as possible as it is important that providers have sufficient time to prepare themselves before the changes go live.

Legal Aid Transformation queries other than training should be addressed to the Ministry of Justice.
