The Legal Aid Reforms represent a radical, wide-ranging and ambitious programme of reform which reflects the Government’s commitment to make legal aid available to those who need it most, for the most serious cases in which legal advice or representation is justified.
The Legal Aid Agency has compiled a programme of training to assist Providers with the changes being introduced.
