Policies & Conditions

In order to represent Legal Aid clients, lawyers must apply to be on our panel. This must be submitted to Head Office before we can release any payment for work done on the file. You will remain on the panel indefinitely, unless you ask to be removed. If you change your name, firm or mailing address, please complete an updated Panel Application and submit it to Head Office so that we can update our records.

After consultation with the Law Society of Saskatchewan, Legal Aid Saskatchewan has increased the legal aid tariff rate to $88 per hour for matters being billed hourly and a proportionate increase to the fixed rates and agent fees.

This rate is effective on all appointments issued with an effective date October 1, 2014 or later. Please note that the new rate is not retroactive.

Legal Aid Saskatchewan expects all lawyers to be familiar with the policies and conditions of joining our panel. Please see documents below for details.
