Immigration Legal Aid

The Legal Services Commission’s (LSC) bidding (tendering) process for legal aid contracts scheduled to start in October 2010 is under way.  JL Solicitors has submitted a bid to hold a contract in the field of immigration and if successful, this will enable us to offer legal aid (publicly funded) immigration legal services to the local community when the new legal aid contracts begin in October 2010 (if the start date is not delayed again).  Further news on the outcome of our bid will be posted as and when we receive it ourselves.
