Review Authority

COVID-19 ALERT LEVEL 2 UPDATE

From 18 May 2020 and at Level 2 of the COVID-19 Alert level, the office of the Review Authority will re-open to the public, by appointment only. The Authority will continue to receive and process new matters and submissions sent via email. Decisions that have been finalised will be released and all matters that can proceed on the papers will be advanced.

Parties are encouraged to send documents via email in the first instance, followed by hard copies as necessary, sent by courier or post.

The Review Authority reviews decisions the Secretary for Justice makes about legal aid provider approvals.

You can apply to the Authority for a review of decisions about:

  • declining your application to provide legal aid services or specified legal services
  • imposing any condition on your approval to provide legal aid services or specified legal services
  • imposing any interim restriction on you where your performance is under investigation 
  • imposing any sanction on you after an investigation of your performance
  • cancelling your approval to provide legal aid services or specified legal services.
