13. Legal Aid Review Committee Appeals

13.8. Decision of the Legal Aid Review Committee is final

Under s60 of the Act, the decision of the Legal Aid Review Committee is final. Occasionally the Legal Aid Review Committee may refer a policy question arising out of an appeal back to Legal Aid NSW for guidance.

See Guideline 6.6 in relation to deferred appeals.

However, if a decision has been made by a Legal Aid Review Committee the decision is final and neither the Committee nor Legal Aid NSW will review the merits of that decision.

In cases where, new information comes to hand subsequent to the decision of the Legal Aid Review Committee, a redetermination of an application for legal aid under s34(1) of the Act may be relevant.
