We would encourage you to submit accounts using Legal Aid Online (LAOL).
If you are unable to submit your accounts online we have created an email address which will allow you to attach your accounts and email them directly to us.
Where you send us accounts and any attachments, such as vouching, by email they must be compressed, encrypted and sent using the free open source software 7-zip.
Once you have installed the software it is a simple process to compress the document and email it to us using 7-zip.
We have provided some instructions below. Please note: the process may differ depending on the email client you use.
You should attach and send your accounts individually and securely to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, there is a 50MB limit for each email sent.
If your account is going to exceed that limit, please send us the completed synopsis form only.
We will register the account based on the information recorded on the synopsis.
We will then notify you to upload the account as an attachment to the record.
Similarly for any attachments such as vouching or supporting information you should not send these to us by email, but instead these should be uploaded and attached to the record once the account has been registered.
Accounts submitted in this way will be considered and processed as normal.
We will notify you of any queried work items or abatements made to the account.
It would be helpful if you could include the email address on the front of the account that you would like us to send the offered account securely to.
