For legal aid to be granted for photocopying the following tests must be satisfied:
If the request for photocopying is to provide the client with a copy of the material, the client must be in prison.
Practitioners seeking an extension of aid for photocopying should electronically submit an extension of aid request via the Grants Online system prior to photocopying the material.
Where there is a large volume of material to be photocopied, Legal Aid Queensland may ask practitioners to obtain a quote from a commercial printing shop as photocopying fees at commercial rates can be more economical.
The grant of aid for photocopying is COP.
A decision to refuse legal aid for this type of matter may be appealed to the external review officer (refer to review of decisions).
