What types of funding are available?

There are several funding options and will usually depend on the type of case and in some circumstances your financial circumstances. For example, legal aid is available in respect of all criminal offences, but may be the subject of a contribution in the Crown Court and will be means tested in the magistrates court, meaning that if your disposable income is above a certain figure you will not be eligible. Legal aid will not be available for regulatory or disciplinary matters, but you may be covered by by a legal indemnity on your insurance policy.
