Garda Station Legal Advice Revised Scheme

The Garda Station Legal Advice Revised Scheme provides that, in certain circumstances, legal advice will be provided to persons detained under certain legislation in Garda Stations. The Revised Scheme provides for payments to be made to solicitors in respect of their consultations with detainees and will also provide for payments in respect of solicitor attendances at Garda Stations for the purposes of accompanying a detainee to a Garda/Detainee interview or an I.D. Parade in which the detainee is involved. The Garda Station Legal Advice Revised Scheme commenced on August 15th 2014 and replaces the old Garda Station Legal Advice Scheme which had been administered by the Board since the Scheme’s transfer from the Department of Justice & Equality in 2011.
