Free legal aid

Under the free legal aid scheme the cost of the legal assistance required in cases of particular personal and welfare significance to those who do not have the financial resources to cover such expenses themselves is covered by public means.

Free legal aid can be granted either as free legal advice (extra-judicial legal assistance) or as free legal representation (legal assistance in cases before the courts, from and including the issuance of a charge or writ).

If you receive free legal aid in some cases you can also have your own expenses covered, for example the cost of expert assistance.
