Update on Panels Project
We are reviewing how our private practitioner panels operate to ensure quality legal aid services continue to be delivered to clients.
Recent focus group discussions with lawyers in private practice have considered the entry requirements and related processes for the new Indictable Crime Panel and the new Independent Children's Lawyer Panel.
Final consultations with the Law Institute of Victoria are underway and will conclude this month. Following this, we will pilot the new processes with these two panels, which are scheduled to open between July and September 2013.
For more information contact Quality Project Manager Anne-Dorte Dev Burman on (03) 9269 0474 or at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Panels page.
