Deadline for responses to legal aid financial eligibility assessment consultation extended to 11 February 2022

The deadline for responses to our financial eligibility assessment consultation has been extended until 5pm on 11 February 2022.

We have been asked for an extension to allow some stakeholders to give the consultation full consideration.

The consultation seeks the views of the profession and others about how we assess the financial eligibility of people applying for civil legal aid, and includes options for simplifying this process.
