My application for a grant of legal aid was refused

If your grant application was refused you should have received a letter from us giving you the reasons for our decision.

If you want that decision reviewed you will need to make an appeal to the Legal Aid Review Committee (LARC).

Please note that not all grant decisions can be appealed to LARC. Generally, only about 10% of appeals to LARC result in the decision being changed. Once LARC makes a decision about your matter it is closed and cannot be re-opened.

LARC will not respond to any further correspondence after it is closed.

We will only consider a new application if your situation has changed significantly and you are able to prove this with supporting information.
