Our Services

We are the Legal Aid Board - an independent, publicly funded organisation providing civil legal aid and advice, family mediation services, and administering three ad-hoc legal aid schemes connected with criminal matters. 

  • Civil legal aid and advice gives you advice about your legal problem. We can help you try to solve your problem, and if you need to go to court, we may be able to provide you with a solicitor and/or barrister to represent you.
  • Family mediation is a free service which we provide to help separating couples and parents whose relationship has broken down to negotiate their own agreement.
  • We administer three non-statutory Criminal Legal Aid Schemes on behalf of the Department of Justice and Equality.
