What is Legal Aid?

Legal aid is public funding through which an individual’s legal fees can be met. The body responsible for governing legal aid is the Legal Aid Agency, who regulates eligibility for legal aid and governs the services that legal aid practitioners such as Cartwright King can carry out.

For legal aid there is various eligibility requirements must be met in order to receive funding, and these requirements will differ depending on the type of case and your personal circumstances. For some proceedings, legal aid eligibility is assessed solely on “merit” – meaning that the facts of the case itself will be assessed by the legal aid agency to determine whether or not legal aid can be granted. Some cases will also be “means” tested – so the legal aid agency will consider your financial circumstances in addition to the facts of the case.
