Civil case reminders


The LAA has started to send reminders regarding the evidence submission window

The Legal Aid Agency (LAA) has started to send out alerts to providers using the application appeal process to request submission of supporting evidence within 7 days. The submission window is a maximum of 14 days; if the required evidence is not submitted, the appeal will be withdrawn. The LAA acknowledged it is not always possible to upload the required documents in one go and the reminders are aim to speed up the appeals process and prevent appeals being considered without the right evidence.
