New key information on how legal aid will work post April 2013

The LSC has just uploaded some key documentation onto its website, which gives us a good idea of how legal aid will operate post April 2013, including:

  • Draft merits regulations
  • Draft procedure regulations (the equivalent of the Funding Code under the Access to Justice Act 1999)
  • Draft evidence required to show domestic violence
  • Standard Contract terms 2013
  • Contract specification 2013 – this is the specificiation for the Community Legal Advice telephone service; but some parts are of general application
  • Category definitions
