The LAA has issued an invitation to express interest in the delivery of services under paras 32 (2) and (3) and 32A (2) and (3) of Schedule 1 of LASPO. These are employment law claims or other damages claims by victims of trafficking or of modern slavery arising out of the trafficking or slavery.
These cases are in the miscellaneous category, and therefore existing providers will have limited ability to offer Legal Help work. The LAA is offering an additional 10 matter starts to successful applicants, which must be used for this work, and with a facility to apply for more if needed. The invitation is open to all current holders of civil contracts, who will therefore have a licence to carry out certificated work arising out of any Legal Help cases taken.
The response form can be found here, and must be returned by noon on 12 January 2017.
