District Court Certificate

When you are first charged and brought before the District Court you can apply for a legal aid certificate. This certificate entitles the solicitor assigned to the case to be paid for all his or her appearances in the District Court. If the charge is murder or if the case is of sufficient complexity and gravity, the legal aid certificate will entitle you to both a solicitor and barrister at the District Court stage.
