Amended guidance and forms follow judgment in case of IS versus Director of Legal Aid Casework.
We are publishing revised guidance and forms for clients and providers on civil legal aid funding in non-inquest cases.
The guidance was published on 12 November 2015 and is available on the exceptional funding pages on GOV.UK – see below.
It takes into account the judgment of Mr Justice Collins in ‘IS versus the Director of Legal Aid Casework and the Lord Chancellor’.
We will also very shortly issue amended Lord Chancellor’s guidance under section 4 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act.
This judgment is being appealed and we will review these changes when we know the outcome.
