Policies and decision-makers’ guidance (DMG) published for clawback in Civil Legal Aid

We’ve published policies and decision-makers’ guidance (DMG) for clawback in Civil Legal Aid as part of our GALA project.

The polices and guidance on our GALA website are intended primarily for our decision-makers for:

The new policy statements and DMG are available on the GALA website for the following:
