Flying Solo: Best Practices for Managing Proceedings with Self-Represented Litigants
About this topic:
An increasing number of current and former employees are choosing to pursue their claims through courts and tribunals as self-represented litigants, without the assistance of legal counsel. This poses both practical and ethical challenges when defending and attempting to resolve these claims.
In this seminar, attendees will learn:
- How to manage litigation or potential litigation with self-represented individuals, including best practices for ethical advocacy
- Strategies the courts and administrative tribunals use to manage litigation involving self-represented litigants
- What concerns self-represented litigants have and how those concerns can affect the litigation process
CPD Hours: This program is eligible for up to 1.5 substantive hours. Please note that we have applied to the Law Society of Ontario for accreditation of professionalism hours, and will keep participants posted.
Sarah Crossley, Giovanna Di Sauro and Laura Freitag.
