Legal Aid Queensland’s Commonwealth funding for 2015-16 will be reduced by $1.5M. This reduction follows a $3M cut to Legal Aid Queensland’s Commonwealth funding in 2014-15.

In recent weeks the Legal Aid Office has consulted with judicial officers, the Family Law Practitioners’ Association, the Bar Association of Queensland and the Queensland Law Society regarding various options available to address the funding cuts and from late July 2015, significant changes to Legal Aid Queensland family law funding grants will be introduced.
