Corporate Governance

As part of the process of corporate governance within the public service, the Board produces a Corporate Governance Manual as well as Corporate Plans every three years. The manual and plans are available from this page. If you have any comments, the Board would be pleased to hear from you.

External Board Review

The Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies 2016 requires that an external evaluation proportionate to the size and requirements of the State body should be carried out at least every three years. In compliance with this requirement, an external review of the Legal Aid Board, by the firm Governance Ireland, was completed in May 2018. The Legal Aid Board has decided to publish the report in full, and is proceeding to implement the recommendations set out in the report.
