Children's Legal Assistance Handbook - Introduction

This Handbook contains guidance to the legal profession about advice and assistance and legal aid for children’s hearings and associated court proceedings. 

As it is intended mainly for solicitors, where we use the term “you”, this means the solicitor acting in a legal aid case.
