CDS5 has been amended to include court of appeal funding.

CWORK1 has been revised to update details concerning the client/partner certification.

LF1 and LF2 have been amended as a result of an interim review.

CLSCLAIM1, CLSCLAIM1A, CLSCLAIM2 and CLSADMIN1 have been updated to enhance clarity and ease of processing by staff at the Legal Services Commission.

EC_CLAIM1(IMM) and EC_CLAIM1(MH) are two new forms which replace EC_CLAIM1(CIVIL). Therefore EC_CLAIM1(CIVIL), CLSCM1(EXTRAPG4) and CLSCM1(P5) are made obsolete.
