We have published a new edition of the LAOL e-newsletter which explains the enhancements made to Legal Aid Online on 21 June 2011.

Among other changes, the menus have been reorganised to create more space on the screen.

Menus now appear along the top of the screen and can be accessed by moving the cursor to the required tab (for example, A&A, Civil).

A set of drop-down links will appear and users can then access the required application (for example, increases or sanctions).
