The Community Legal Service (Financial) (Amendment No. 3) Regulations 2009

This instrument amends the Community Legal Service (Financial) Regulations 2000 which relate to financial eligibility for, and contributions towards, civil legal aid. It takes account of the introduction of the Crown Court Means Testing scheme so that criminal legal aid contributions paid by clients towards the cost of their representation in the Crown Court can be disregarded when their financial eligibility for civil legal aid funding is being assessed.
