Full Day EVENT | 9:00 AM-4:30 PM
Self-represented litigants are a diverse group. Some are adept at court procedures. Others are highly disorganised and display problematic behaviours.
In some instances, your interactions with self-represented litigants can be complicated by their impaired legal capacity, mental health issues or a range of communication difficulties.
In this full-day session, you will explore how to navigate these challenges – ensuring that access to justice is achieved.
You will cover:
- the different typologies of self-represented litigants
- the relationship between stress, emotion and courtroom behaviour
- skills and strategies to respond to unexpected challenges
- how to ensure procedural fairness.
