Litigants in Person pro bono group

Nigel Smith, the Director of the Litigants in Person Project was part of the expert panel on the episode ‘Representing Yourself in Court’. The episode discussed the costs of legal aid and the increasing numbers of people representing themselves in court.

The Litigants in Person Project aims to support members of the public who do not have the funds for legal representation. Student volunteers assist litigants with their cases at Leicester County Court by accompanying them into legal proceedings to take notes, filling out forms and preparing legal bundles.
