Training for legal aid changes now available

PUBLISHED November 11, 2013

Online modules on the provider training website

The online training to help you prepare for the legal aid changes that are being introduced on 2 December 2013 is now available.

These changes follow the consultation Transforming Legal Aid: Delivering a more credible and efficient system.

We?ve been able to put everything you need to know about the changes on the Provider Training website now that the relevant statutory instruments have been laid before Parliament.

To access the training you will need to register on the site and complete all the required fields ? see below.

You?ll also need your LAA office account number, and a practising certificate number when registering.

The training consists of a welcome pack and four modules covering the changes on 2 December 2013:

Further legal aid changes are not due to be introduced until early next year, and we will provide more online training modules nearer the time.
