Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
I wish for a judicial review of a "driving under the influence of cannibas" case. The ban for this offence is a 4 yr dissqualification from driving, which in my opinion is very harsh for a first and only offence. Giving my personal situation the relevance of the judicial review is high because my partner doesn't drive and i have a two yr old son which requires at least one trip a year to Crumlin Hospital in Dublin. My question that i want answered is, can free legal aid be provided to me for the judicial review? I am currently on disability and cannot afford a barrister. I would gratefully appreciate an answer regarding the availability of free legel aid for my situation. Thank you.
