Legal Aid Provider Contract and Practice Standards - renewal and refresh

Closed 25 Jul 2016

Opened 14 Jun 2016


Legal Aid Services consulted on proposed changes to the Contract for Services and to the Practice Standards for legal aid providers. The current contract expires on 30 November 2016 and we've taken the opportunity to improve the document. We asked for legal aid lawyers' views on proposals that are presented in the discussion document below. The new contract looks different, but nothing of substance has changed. Importantly, there are no substantive new obligations on providers.
