L’art. 24 paragraph 3 of the Constitution guarantees “to the less well-off ” (…) the means to act and defend themselves before any jurisdiction.”
Free legal aid is an institution based on the right of defense provided for by art. 24 of the Constitution, according to which anyone has the right to be assisted in any state and degree of judgment; for these reasons it is provided for each jurisdiction: civil, criminal, military, administrative, accounting and tax.
In particular, it allows people with economic difficulties to be assisted, at the expense of the state, by a lawyer and by specialists such as technical consultants; and to be exempt from paying court costs. The patronage therefore allows to avoid any kind of disbursement by the less well-off, but at the same time provides that the activity carried out by those who assist the aforementioned is recognized economically by the State.
Always in compliance with art. 24 of the Constitution, the possibility of resorting to free legal aid lies not only with Italian citizens, but also with foreigners, even if subjected to administrative expulsion proceedings or not residing in Italy. (Law of July 30, 1990, n. 217).
All parts of the process can use them, but in the case of a person offended for crimes against sexual freedom, the income limits set by law do not apply.
Minors, as well as persons subjected to preliminary investigations if subjected to arrest, detention or custodial precautionary measure, can also use them.
The standard identifies the criteria on the basis of which to determine who is not wealthy: “a person who has an annual taxable income for personal income tax purposes not exceeding a predetermined amount periodically updated by ministerial decree is considered to be non-wealthy.”
The current income limit for admission to legal aid is € 11,493.82, as updated by the decree of the ministry of justice of 18 January 2018.
The matter is regulated by the D.P.R. May 30, 2002 n. 115; at Community level, the right of defense of the less well-off is enshrined in art. 47, paragraph 3, of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
