The Legal Aid Changes and Judicial Review

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


The Access to Justice Act 1999, Part I came into force on 1 April 2000. It substantially repeals and replaces the provisions of the Legal Aid Act 1988. Its aim is to put in place a new system for the future operation of public funding of litigation. It will apply to all applications for legal aid made on or after 1 April 2000. It appears that applications made prior to 1 April 2000 and received by the Legal Aid Board before 2 May 2000 will proceed under the “old” system.

This article looks at the effect that these changes will have on judicial review.
