Review Authority

During the Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown, the Review Authority will be closed.

Any hearings that had been set down during the period of the lockdown have been adjourned. You will be contacted with new dates in the future, once the lockdown has been lifted.

The Authority is unable to process any new or existing applications during this period of lockdown, however you may wish to submit new information to the email address on the website.

Thank you for your co-operation.

The Review Authority reviews decisions the Secretary for Justice makes about legal aid provider approvals.

You can apply for a review if you’re an approved legal aid provider or if you’ve applied to be a legal aid provider.

You can apply to the Authority for a review of decisions about:

  • declining your application to provide legal aid services or specified legal services
  • imposing any condition on your approval to provide legal aid services or specified legal services
  • imposing any interim restriction on you where your performance is under investigation 
  • imposing any sanction on you after an investigation of your performance
  • cancelling your approval to provide legal aid services or specified legal services.
