    Generally (at least in Victoria) Legal Aid outsources work to private solicitors, paying them on a 'stage of matter' basis to conduct the work. There is no conflict of interest in this situation as the 'in house' legal aid lawyers do not have access to any information or files conducted by the private law firm.
