Legal Aid and Coroners’ Courts Act (Northern Ireland) 2014

Section 12: Commencement

It is intended that civil legal services will be implemented on the same date that the Commission is dissolved (and the new Agency is set up within the Department). For this reason, various provisions and consequential amendments will be coming into operation on the day after Royal Assent. This will enable the Department to bring forward the necessary secondary legislation to implement civil legal services and have them commence on the dissolution date.
