As a supporter of law firms carrying out publicly funded work, LEAP continually develops software to help law firms become more efficient and to meet Legal Aid Agency requirements, ensuring compatibility with their systems.
Work as you would with private matters. Once a matter is set up, the applicable data fields, documents, reports, rates, and charges will be automatically associated with the matter, ensuring that you only record items at the correct rate or fee and disbursements, applicable to that work type.
LEAP works closely with the Legal Aid Agency, making regular improvements and ensuring that all rates and forms are kept up to date. All updates are included as part of your monthly LEAP subscription. Automation of pre-populated fields means you can complete your form in an instant.
The integrated submission for both Civil and Criminal work types via CWA, ensures claims can be checked, and submitted electronically in readiness for payment.
Access a library of up-to-date legal aid forms including the CRM11, CW1 and EC-Claim form. Quickly and accurately merge your matter data into a document to produce your form.
"We used LEAP's updated legal aid software to run our latest submission, and it was the most hassle free submission we have ever done! Although only used for a short period of time, it is universally agreed at the firm that it is excellent and will save us a lot of wasted admin time."Ryan Dormer Nelson Guest & Partners Solicitors
"As a Legal Aid firm, we were looking for a partner who could provide us with a system to make the life of the caseworkers easier. LEAP does this. The Legal Aid time recording is easy to use and billing is made easy to navigate. With the recent update to the system, we received training which was very good and support was on hand if any issues arose. We would recommend LEAP to other firms."Ali Hussain (LLB Hons) - Managing Partner Legal Justice Solicitors
"As a sole practitioner the LEAP case management system completely takes away the pressure of monthly submissions - I often wonder how I managed without it, it's simple and straightforward and the online support is really good, a must-have for legal practitioners."Claudia Francois CFJ & Co Solicitors
"The recent updates to legal aid within LEAP are extremely good. The ‘New Billable Items’ function makes time recording so much easier. The requirement to input units over minutes eradicates the risk of entering an ineligible figure. The ability to correct multiple recordings at once if, for example, the wrong date is entered is very useful."Ryan Dormer Nelson Guest & Partners Solicitors
