In this lecture we will review some of the requirements when designing and operating laser systems for laser-plasma acceleration. We will analyse the impact of the different components of the laser system on the final output and discuss how they can be mitigated against or prevented. We will study some of the existing laser facilities used for particle acceleration and the future prospects for the next generation of facilities.
