30 April deadline for use of old legal aid forms

Only new LAA versions of civil forms accepted from 1st May

The Legal Aid Agency says that most old LSC civil and crime forms are still being accepted if they were signed before 1 April 2013. However, no old LSC forms will be accepted after 30 April 2013.

The 30 April cut-off date also still applies if the LSC or LAA has rejected an old LSC form.

The LAA has already stopped accepting applications on old LSC forms for civil representation. This ended after 5pm on 8 April 2013.
