Legal Aid is a UK Government initiative that can help pay for Legal Advice and Legal Representation.
On qualifying for Legal Aid you may have part or all of your Legal fees paid for, depending on your financial position.
Explore our Free Legal Aid Advice to see if your income and legal problem qualifies.
The first step is to find a legal adviser that offers a Legal Aid service. The solicitor should offer an initial free consultation to asses whether you are likely to qualify in full or part for Legal Aid depending on the nature of your legal problem and your personal financial position.
The LSC administers the Legal Aid Scheme on behalf of the UK Government. They have a budget of 2 Billion Pounds which is granted each year to help approximately 2 million people in England and Wales get legal help and advice while contributing or paying for their legal costs.
We cover the salient information in self assessing Legal Aid for those living in England. Those living in Scotland and Northern Ireland would be advised to visit the relevant websites for those regions, supplied below. Different regions within the UK have slightly different criteria regarding who qualifies financially and legal situations qualifying for legal aid costs.
