Comparison of legal aid funded cases and non funded cases

The request was successful.

Dear Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunal Service,

I would be very interested to know how many cases in the Magistrates Court that are legal aid funded go to contest and how many non funded cases go to contest?

The cost of these contests and the number of appearances of legal aided cases compared to non funded cases.

thank you

Yours faithfully,
