The purpose of the Review Committee is to consider and decide applications for review of first instance decisions of the Legal Assistance Policy Committee (including reviews of conditions) where review by the Legal Services Cases Committee is excluded by virtue of the involvement of the latter Committee in a prior decision in relation to the application.

The Review Committee will consist of a single Board member and two senior officials of the Board.

The Board member, who will chair the Committee, may be any Board member who has not attended either the Legal Assistance Policy Committee or the Legal Service Cases Committee at any of the prior meetings when earlier decisions in relation to the application were made.

Minutes of Committee decisions will be submitted to the meeting of the Legal Assistance Policy Committee which follows the Committee decision, for information.
