Jersey's government has asked people who should foot the bill for people who can't afford legal representation for criminal trials.
Legal aid is currently paid for by lawyers, but politicians are now reviewing plans for the government to share the cost.
The government would fund criminal case costs and the lawyers would cover civil cases.
Under other proposed changes, the legal aid scheme could become legally recognised - it isn't written into Jersey law at present.
A panel which is reviewing the proposals is hoping to hear the views of people before the States debate next month.
