A handbook for litigants in person - a guide produced and published by the judiciary


Access to justice is a right not a privilege. That right has in the vast majority of cases traditionally been exercised by members of the public through the services of a lawyer.

However, over the last ten years there has been an increase in the number of individuals who have, for various reasons, pursued and defended claims on their own behalf - litigants in person, or self-represented litigants. It is anticipated that in the years to come the number of litigants in person will increase.

This guide to appearing in civil cases without legal representation has been produced and published by the judiciary and is available to download by clicking on 'View Briefing'.
