Legal Aid Handbook - draft April 2015General RegistryLegal Aid Handbook - draft April 2015

This document sets out the procedures to be followed by Advocates and the Legal Aid Admninistration team in dealing with legal aid matters. It reflects the current situation which is presently documented in a number of "Panel Letters" and procedure notes and brings them together into one reference manual. It is envisaged that this document will become the definitive manual on 1 October 2015 and the various panel letters will then cease to have effect. The handbook was issued in April 2015 to advocates who are on the Legal Aid Panel and to the Law Society. Comments are welcomed prior to 31 August 2015 to enable any corrections or clarifications to be included in the final version. Since its issue, the Legal Aid Committee have issued two further documents, a policy on the procedure to be followed for removing an advocate from the panel, and a policy on mediation, both of which will be incorporated in the next edition of the handbook.
