6. Legal Aid Review Committee Appeals

6.5. Urgent matters

Urgent appeals must be approved by:

  • the Manager Operations of the Grants Division matter, or
  • in the absence of the Manager Operations, the Director Grants

48 hours before the next meeting. This time is needed for the Secretariat to arrange for the papers to be delivered to the Committee members and for the members to read them.

Where an appeal in relation to an in-house matter is urgent, the in-house solicitor should contact the Senior Solicitor for the relevant area of law in the Grants Division and request that a LARC Report be prepared urgently.

The Legal Aid Review Committee Secretariat will endeavour to place such matters on the next appropriate Legal Aid Review Committee agenda provided that it is received at least 48 hours before the next meeting.
