WIRO Wire | New WIRO Funding Policy

I am delighted to announce the release of the new WIRO Funding Policy for the Independent Legal Assistance and Review Service and the new ILARS Grant Amount Guide.

The Policy will come into operation on Monday 2 September 2019.

The ILARS Grant Amount Guide will apply to all resolutions on or after 2 September 2019.

In addition, there are a number of new or revised documents as follows:

  • Application Form for ILARS Grant of Funding
     
  • ILARS Grant Amount Guide
     
  • ILARS Tax Invoice Guide
     
  • Application and Agreement to be a WIRO Approved Lawyer (Solicitor)
     
  • Application and Agreement to be a WIRO Approved Barrister
     
  • Practice Standards for WIRO Approved Lawyers (Solicitors)
     
  • Approval requirements for WIRO Approved Lawyers (Solicitors)

WIRO will be holding a series of short question and answer seminars in the CBD, outer Sydney and regional areas over the next few weeks and months to assist Approved Lawyers with the changes to the Policy and other documents.

A copy of the Policy and Grant Amount Guide are attached for your information.

All documents will be available on the WIRO website on 2 September 2019.
