It is likely that more parties will decide to self-represent given the current economic climate.  

The issues for any practitioner in dealing with self-represented litigants are varied and complex, as the litigant will often have little knowledge of the legal system. COVID-19 has complicated an already tense and difficult situation. This can lead to complaints against the practitioner and risks a successful outcome for your client.  

This session will offer practical guidance on dealing with self-represented litigants with particular focus on remote meetings and other issues arising from COVID-19.
