LAPG is a membership organisation that represents and provides support for legal aid practitioners. Our Committee is drawn from legal aid practitioners across all areas of law, from right across the country and from all types of providers (small, large, NfP and ABS). As an organisation, LAPG is well known for contributing to and influencing both operational and policy matters. We are committed to access to justice and to ensuring that the legal aid scheme is accessible to as many people as possible. We also believe that the scheme itself needs to be clear and fit for purpose.
We also offer membership for barristers. In the current climate of fundamental changes to legal aid, barristers can also benefit from our specialist support services to members.
Our membership period runs from 1 January to 31 December.
For those with a legal aid contract, membership of LAPG is on an organisational rather than individual basis. Barristers can join LAPG as individuals and we also have group membership schemes for other representative bodies. Contact us if you have any queries about our membership schemes.
