Are you having problems with the LAA over category definitions?

Ministry of Justice

Noel Arnold, Director of Legal Practice of the Coram Children’s Legal Centre (CCLC) is appealing to readers to contact him if they are experiencing any difficulty or dispute with the LAA concerning this issue.

CCLC has applied for funding certificates for clients and these have recently been refused by the LAA. The LAA are saying that CCLC does not have the right ‘category of law’ named in its office schedule to the 2013 Standard Civil Contract to be able to do the work and so certificates are not being granted. CCLC is concerned that other providers may be experiencing the same issues.

If you are having such issues or want to know more, please call Noel on 020 7713 2018 or email
