Responses SLAB has made to consultations

SLAB often responds to external consultations undertaken by, for example, the Scottish Executive. We also make submissions from time to time, to bodies such as the Scottish Parliament Justice Committees on issues about legal aid. Please contact us to request a copy of a submission we have made to a particular consultation from the listing below. Some responses are available online via links in the listing below. 

Parliamentary questions raised in the Scottish Parliament about legal aid are available on the Scottish Parliament's website. Sometimes, responses made by SLAB to consultations by the Scottish Executive may also be available on their website.
