Guidance on Legal Aid in Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction cases

This paper is intended to provide guidance to HLPA members on the circumstances in which they can continue to represent clients and get paid for Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction work under legal aid following the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime & Policing Act 2014. The changes came into effect on 23 March 2015.

It should however, be noted that at present there are still issues upon which clarification is being sought from the Legal Aid Agency (“LAA”). It is therefore likely that further supplementary guidance will be issued once further information is provided by the LAA.
