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.
