Information for Barristers about doing civil legal aid work
A law centre or a solicitor who does civil legal aid work can only brief a barrister who is a member of the Board's barristers' panel. There is one barristers' panel, which covers all types of civil legal aid work.
If you are interested in joining the panel, complete an application form. You must agree to the terms and conditions of membership of the panel. Details of the operation of the panel, including the fee structure are set out in terms and conditions. The application should be sent to:
Legal Aid Board,
