Grant of legal aid

If your application for legal aid is approved, you will receive a grant of legal aid. If you are granted legal aid, you may receive assistance from either a legal practitioner employed by the Legal Aid NSW or, in some cases, a private legal practitioner. Grants of legal aid may be available for legal representation and, in some cases, may cover other expenses such as the payment of interpreter's fees and payment for an expert's report. See types of grants chapter for the different types of grants of aid that are available.
