Crime news: emailing of rep orders starts 30 August 2016

Reminder that representation orders and refusal notices are now being emailed.


Providers are now being emailed representation orders for successful criminal legal aid applications and refusal notices for failed applications.

This change means that you will receive a copy of the representation order/refusal notice sooner.

It is one of a number of changes we’re working on to improve our processes.

Full details about this change were publicised in an article earllier this month – see below.
