Guidance on applications for A&A and Civil Legal Aid for Judicial Review


Friday, Sep 18, 2015

Changes in the way that petitions for judicial review will be dealt with will come into effect on 22 September as part of the implementation of the Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014.

These in turn require changes to the way applications for civil legal aid are processed by us, and we have prepared guidance to detail the arrangements and changes.

The Civil Handbook is also being updated in similar terms at various parts of the Handbook, but the guidance below provides a single source of reference.
