New LAOL screens and guidance for Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016

We have prepared guidance for changes that are being made to the Legal Aid Online system during the evening of the Wednesday 24 January.

As a result of the implementation of Part 1 of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 on Thursday 25 January we have created new online screens to allow solicitors to register:

  • Police Station/Custody advice applications
  • Criminal Justice ABWOR applications

More details on the arrangements for police station advice are available on our CJA information page.
