Legal Assistance for the community
The Bar Association has a scheme under which a person may obtain legal assistance from members of the Bar. It is called the Legal Assistance Referral Scheme (LARS).

About LARS
How does it work?

spiral The LARS approach to facilitating legal assistance
The Legal Assistance Referral Scheme (LARS) tries to match
your request for legal assistance with a barrister or mediator
who may be able to give advice, appear for you or settle
your legal issue.

pic Applications
We consider your application carefully before deciding
whether or not we can give you any legal assistance. There
are three steps in the process.Please read our brochure >>

    What about the barrister's fees?
picThe barrister & applicant are free to enter into a retainer and fee disclosure agreement directly (or with the applicant’s solicitor) which must comply with the Legal Profession Act.
