Forms


Most paper processes have been replaced by Legal Aid Online. However, some paper based processes remain. We provide digital (pdf) versions of forms. Detailed below are our current forms which are available in pdf and MS Word formats.
 
You will require Adobe (Acrobat) Reader to open the pdfs. This software is free and available from Adobe's web site. Other software providers offer equivalent products. If you cannot open the pdfs it is probably because you do not have Adobe software or have an old version of the software.
 

To enquire about getting a form in another language, please contact the communications office on tel. 0131 240 1887 or email communications@slab.org.uk.
