Being prepared in Parliament – Changes to legal aid to persons in material need

Issue: PRO BONO 08/2011

The proposed Amendment to the Act No. 327/2005 Coll. on Provision of Legal Aid to Persons in Material Need should strengthen its precautionary function and improve the accessibility of services provided to persons in material need by the Legal Aid Centre (Centrum právnej pomoci). The proposal extends the accessibility of the services of the Legal Aid Centre by introducing services that can be offered to physical persons whose income is higher than the limit necessary to qualify for free legal aid as stipulated in the current law, provided that they make a 20-percent contribution.
