Combined jurisdiction legal aid form(external link)

Legal aid is an important part of New Zealand's justice system. It helps people to resolve legal problems that may go to court and makes sure that people are not denied justice because they can't afford a lawyer.

After reviewing the success of the family and civil legal aid form which was implemented in November last year, an opportunity has been identified to combine applications in the criminal jurisdiction into the form.
