Review of refusal of legal aid or conditions attached to grant of legal aid

Under section 28H of the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986, we have to establish a procedure that allows:

  • Your client to apply for a review of our decision to refuse them children’s legal aid.
  • Your client to apply for a review of a condition(s) applied to their legal aid grant.

Where an application is refused, you can submit a review application of this refusal for consideration. If this remains refused, the procedure is at an end unless any new issues that come to light.

You can ask us to review a condition applied to a grant at any time.
