EFIS 22, March 2015 : Legal Aid

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Legal Aid Agency has amended the civil Legal Aid forms for mandatory use on and after 1st April, but these amended Civil Legal Aid forms can be used before this date.

Civil Legal Aid forms which are signed and dated on or after 1st April must use these latest versions. However, existing Civil Legal Aid forms which are signed on or before 31st March should be submitted before 30th April or they will risk being rejected by the Legal Aid Agency.

The Counsel Matrix is a new form which practitioners can use to record claims paid to counsel under a civil legal aid contract.

Although the existing version of LF3(Online) will still be accepted, criminal legal aid practitioners may prefer to use the latest version from 1st April.
