Going to Court without a Lawyer? Research Project on Self-Represented Litigants – now NZ wide

Filed under: General — selfrepresented @ 2:38 pm Mon 2nd September 2013

If you are currently representing yourself in the Family, District or High Court, or have a case that finished in the last year, you may be eligible to participate in a research project on the self-representation in the New Zealand civil courts. The study is now open to anyone in New Zealand. Have your say on how the system responds to self-represented litigants. For more information see Thank you to everyone who has already responded for the call to participants.

  3. Hi kihk,
    I suspect you are referring to Andy Wooten’s website, Fathers of NZ. Unfortunately Andy died in a tragic accident about 12 months ago.
    Kumar I was expecting you this evening.
