We’ve published our first ever Annual Review, which highlights our work over the last 12 months and looks ahead to the future for the organisation and the legal aid lawyers we serve. Download a copy here.
The Annual Review also sets out our three primary objectives:
(1) Influencing policy and decision-makers to make the legal aid scheme simpler, fairer, more accessible and capable of facilitating access to justice
(2) Enabling legal aid practitioners to provide quality services to their clients by providing operational support
(3) Building a community of legal advice providers and to support that community through training, conferences and events
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the Annual Review or would like us to send you a hard copy.
LAPG members are still encountering a huge number of issues with CCMS. From technical problems and design issues, CCMS is proving to be problematic and in some cases causing severe delays and practical issues for practitioners.
Read the full list of feedback here. Members have provided general feedback, for which the LAA has provided responses where possible, and more specific feedback about making urgent funding applications.
If you want to provide us with your experiences please email email@example.com using ‘CCMS Feedback’ as the subject line.
