15. Grants to Community Legal Centres

15.2. Grants of legal aid to community legal centres

15.2 What is included in a grant of aid made to a Community Legal Centre (CLC)?

A grant of legal aid made by Legal Aid NSW to a CLC covers disbursements only and does not normally include legal practitioner's fees. Legal practitioner fees are paid in specific circumstances as outlined in 15.4, 15.5 and 15.6 of this policy.

Where a grant of legal aid to a CLC does not cover legal practitioner fees this must be clearly stated in the grant letter.

Disbursements including counsel's fees, are paid at the normal legal aid rates to all CLCs listed in the Schedule.
