Who We Are

Legal Aid Malta was established by Legal Notice 414 of 2014. The function of the Agency is to give operational and administrative support to the Advocate of Legal Aid who heads the Agency. Legal Notice 64 of 2016, Legal Aid Agency (Procedures) Order 2016, lays down the procedure to be adopted by the Agency for civil legal aid applications. It also spells out the functions and duties of the administration staff within the Agency. 

Legal Aid Malta is composed of an Advocate for Legal Aid who direct the work of the legal aid lawyers and legal procurators. The legal procurators assist the legal aid lawyers in the day to day running. Lawyers and Legal Procurators are assigned civil and criminal cases on two different rosters. ​

The Team
The Agency is composed of two aspects: the legal and the administrative. The legal aspect is primarily headed by the Head Advocate for Legal Aid and the administrative part is run by the public sector officers assigned with the Agency.​
