Who qualifies for Legal Aid SL?

To access the scheme, the applicant must be indigent. This means the applicant’s income should not be above the minimum wage of Le 600,000, which is equivalent to US$60 as per the current exchange rate. Applicants of the scheme must therefore complete a Form, known as MEANS TEST at any LAB office around the country in which information about their legal matter, personal details, and income status are required. This notwithstanding, children qualify for legal aid without any precondition. Also, the nationality of the individual is not a bar to legal aid.
