The primary purpose of the Legal Assistance Policy Committee is to provide policy guidance on the operation of legal assistance.

In doing this, the Committee will:

  • Provide insight and guidance on policy development informing operational guidance
  • Assess that policy development against a framework approved by the Board
  • Review newly published guidance against an agreed quality standard
  • Report the Board on the level of assurance obtained
  • Act as a review body for decisions from the Legal Service Cases Committee.
