The Face of a Self-Represented Litigant (ACL SRL 101)

Description:

Not a phenomenon. Not a theory. Self-represented litigants are real. And they are here.

As Amici Curiae expands its services, join us for our open house.  Hear Supreme Court of BC Justice Linda Loo speak about SRLs that appear before her. Listen to Alberto Mejia, a self-represented litigant speak of his experience and how Amici Curiae paralegals have helped him with his case. Develop best practices in preparing SRLs who are about to appear in court or chambers. Plus, our managers will talk about our five clinics.

Seating is limited to 30!
