What is Legal Aid?


Financial support provided by the government-funded Legal Aid Agency that covers the cost of legal advice and representation under certain qualifying conditions. Legal aid is designed to ensure that everyone has access to legal representation and the court system, regardless of their income or wealth. Different criteria apply to the eligibility for legal aid, depending on the nature of the case and the individual’s personal financial circumstances, except for cases where someone is detailed under section, in which case legal aid is available to anyone.
