Regina (Patel) v Lord Chancellor – WLR Daily

Regina (Patel) v Lord Chancellor [2010] EWHC 2220 (Admin); [2010] WLR (D) 240

“An applicant for exceptional funding by way of legal aid had to meet a high threshold to satisfy the test of ‘significant wider public interest’ in para 27.2.8 of the Legal Services Commission’s Funding Code Decision Making Guidance, subject to the latitude (or margin of discretion) accorded to the Lord Chancellor in the exercise of his judgment. There had to be the potential for client’s involvement in the proceedings to produce real benefits for individuals other than the client and for those benefits to be substantial.”
