Overview

The aim of Legal Aid South Africa is to give legal aid or to make legal aid available to indigent persons within its financial means and provide legal representation at state expense, as set out in the Constitution and relevant legislation giving content to the right to legal representation at state expense.

Legal Aid South Africa's role is to provide legal aid to those who cannot afford their own legal representation. This includes poor people and vulnerable groups such as women, children and the rural poor. It does this in an independent and unbiased manner, with the intention of enhancing justice and public confidence in the law and administration of justice.
