Flying Solo: Best Practices for Managing Proceedings Commenced by 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: We are pleased to announce that our February 28 seminar has been accredited by the Law Society of Ontario. By attending this program, you are eligible for 30 minutes toward Professionalism requirements and up to 1 hour toward your Substantive requirements.
Sarah Crossley, Giovanna Di Sauro and Laura Freitag.
