Victoria Legal Aid Handbook for Lawyers

Victoria Legal Aid (VLA) has increased all professional fees effective from 1 January this year.

The fee increase applies to all existing grants of legal assistance where the matter has not been finalised, and new grants made on or after that date. All appearances and additional preparation completed prior to the changes attract the old fees.
