Civil forms change 4th August

Practitioners should note that the bulk of the civil legal aid forms are changing with effect from next week. The new forms can be found here (UPDATE: all forms can now be found on gov.uk here). Following the successful JR, it appears references to the residence test that were on the draft forms have been removed.

Old versions signed on or before 3rd August will be accepted up to 31st August, but any signatures dated from 4th August should be on the new forms.

UPDATE 31st July: The LAA has now said it will accept old versions provided they are signed before 1st September and received by 5th September.
