Forms and declarations

Guidance

You apply for legal aid and submit your accounts through Legal Aid Online.

However a small number of our forms and declarations are available in paper format. This is because:

  • Paper declarations enable you to capture your client’s signature and details before submitting an application to us through Legal Aid Online.
  • Forms still in paper format are for those accounting processes that have not been replaced by Legal Aid Online. They also enable solicitors to record financial information about a client and submit certain requests for payment and reimbursement.

You should be able to complete any task on Legal Aid Online where you don’t see a form or declaration.

Please contact the LAOL team by email or by calling 0131 240 2057 if you have any questions or need further assistance using the online system.
