The Chancery Division has published a guide for litigants in person involved in interim applications in the Chancery Division.
Developed by Mrs Justice Asplin and Lord Justice Briggs, it offers practical and procedural assistance on a number of issues regarding steps that self-represented litigants should take in relation to interim applications in the Chancery Division (though there may be a number of general points that litigants in person may find helpful irrespective of the court in which they are proceeding).
It includes how and when to serve an application notice, how to prepare for an interim hearing, practical guidance on and tips for the hearing day and so on. This guidance is also of practical assistance to represented parties and their representatives.
The guidance not only assists litigants in person but also represented parties:
The Guide addresses a number of issues, including:
It also has an appendix containing an example application notice, witness statement, skeleton argument and chronology.
Do you think the April 2013 Jackson Reforms are likely to (or have) result(ed) in more litigants in person? Have you encountered any litigants in person when making interim applications and do you think this is a useful guide for them and/or you? Or perhaps you are a self-represented litigant and can share your thoughts? Either way, we'd love to hear your experiences. Please share them below.
