Legal Aid is provided by the government to help fund cases for those who cannot afford to instruct solicitors on a private basis. The Legal Aid Agency provides contracts to firms so that they can provide legal advice and representation in court or tribunal to those who are eligible and in certain areas of law. Law Lane is a listed provider and has license to carry out Legal Aid work in certain departments.
