The LAA have made use of the Client and Cost Management System (CCMS) mandatory for all legal aid providers from the 1st February 2016.

We have been using the system for over a year and have developed our own internal process for managing the various tasks that need to be managed within CCMS.

There are certain tasks that we will need you to complete in order that we can claim counsels fees and we have included these tasks in our process.

We would ask that you consider our process as set out below and:

  • If you are happy with our method of managing cases then you need do no more.
  • If you have any queries or wish to work with us on developing a system tailored for you then please contact our Senior Clerk, Scott Baldwin, who will be happy to discuss alternative arrangements.
