Why are different panels and lists used?
These arrangements are designed to give the public confidence that people who receive legal aid funding are represented by practitioners who are among those most suitable for their particular matter. This is particularly important where the matters are inherently complex, require specialisation, or involve a significant amount of Legal Aid WA funds.
Private practitioners on our panels and lists must have necessary experience in that area. All members of our panels and lists are bound by our professional standards in how they provide legal services on our behalf under a grant of aid. Legal Aid WA investigates and monitors compliance with these standards to maintain the quality of legal services that we fund.
If you have any queries about the panels or lists, and to notify us of temporary unavailability, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Professional Standards and Integrity Unit on (08) 9261 6543.
