Presentation time: 90 minutes

Access to justice is fundamental to our legal system but the costs of going to court can be prohibitive for many. Increasingly, litigants are opting to represent themselves.

This webinar will give you with practical guidance to help you represent clients effectively when a self-represented litigant is appearing on the other side, including managing your client’s expectations in this situation. The presenters will also discuss the current options available to you for providing “unbundled”, limited legal assistance to the self-represented.

This webinar will have a practical focus and in particular the presenters will discuss:

  • The research around lay litigants
  • Understanding and applying the relevant ethical rules
  • Recent UK decisions affecting unbundled legal services
  • McKenzie friends and the High Court’s recent decision in Craig v Slater – is this an increasing role for lawyers and how does this affect your ethical duties to the Court?
  • Tips and tricks.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.

Introduction

This webinar looks at the issue of self-represented litigants – referred to throughout as litigants in person (LiPs) – from two perspectives. First, interacting with an opposing LiP in a dispute. In this part we discuss how to overcome many of the challenges to working with an opposing LiP to build a successful working relationship. We pay particular attention to issues such as costs and settlement, dealing with querulant litigants and managing your client. Second, ways that lawyers can assist LiPs. In this part we consider the risks and benefits of providing unbundled services to a litigant who is otherwise acting in person. We also consider two other support roles lawyers might play: McKenzie friend and amicus curiae.
