Classroom For Self-Reps is a not-for-profit, pro-bono initiative, whose goal is to provide education and information on litigation FREE to the public.
From my past experience as a self-rep and as a lawyer, I’ve found a number of great books that were very helpful to me as a litigant. I’ve put them here, in my Library of resources. These are found here: http://www.litigation-help.com/resources/.
I also have a network of professionals who can help you in your lawsuit. They are listed in Marketplace: http://www.litigation-help.com/market-place/
In addition, I will be conducting seminars tailored to self-represented litigants at the Toronto Public library starting Fall, 2018. I will be lining up specialists from Self-Rep Navigators, as well as from Marketplace to speak on a number of topics of interest to self-represented litigants, from tips on how to handle your lawsuit, to out-of-court options, like mediation and arbitration.
