Who should get legal aid?

Who should get legal aid?

Monday, 1 May 2017

You’ve told us your stories about missing out on legal aid. Now we want to hear your ideas about the potential changes to our means test. We want to make our means test simpler, fairer and easier to understand, and expand eligibility.

We want to know what you think about the options for reform

We have created a series of options on how to change our means test. These options have been developed through previous consultation with lawyers, clients, community legal centres, Victoria Legal Aid staff and the general community.

There are several different ways to contribute to the Means Test Review. You can make a submission in response to our options paper or email the Means Test Review team at meanstestreview@vla.vic.gov.au
