Law Access Disbursements Fund
Thanks to a generous donation from Allen & Overy, Law Access has now established a limited disbursement scheme for pro bono lawyers who take Law Access referrals. Information on how to apply for a Law Access Disbursement Fund can be found in the downloadable guidelines and agreement.
Other disbursements information
The Commonwealth Government provides funding for disbursements in certain legal matters. For more information please see the Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department’s Disbursement Support Scheme. Where Commonwealth funding is available it should be used instead of the Law Access Disbursement Fund.
The Civil Litigation Assistance Scheme operated by Legal Aid WA may provide funding in certain civil matters to cover both professional legal fees and disbursements. Applications must be made by lawyers on behalf of plaintiffs. More information is provided on Legal Aid WA’s Civil Litigation Assistance Scheme website. Where Legal Aid funding is available it should be used instead of the Law Access Disbursement Fund.
