Important CCMS dates

Use of the Legal Aid Agency's (LAA) electronic Client and Costs Management System (CCMS) for legal aid applications for special Children Act proceedings will be mandatory from 1 February 2016. Mandatory use of CCMS for all other civil licensed work applications is scheduled for implementation on 1 April 2016, to give the LAA more time to make further upgrades to the system. The Law Society believes the LAA must demonstrate that the upgraded system is fit for purpose before it becomes mandatory for all civil categories.
