The wording of legal aid certificates

 Note that although the rules of court require the application (to the court) to be made in the name of the PIP, the application for legal aid is made in the name of the debtor and therefore if legal aid is granted the legal aid certificate should be in the name of the debtor. The PIP is regarded as the debtor’s agent for the purposes of the court application.
