As the number of self-represented litigants in hearing rooms and courtrooms across the country grows, judges, already tasked with ensuring dockets move expeditiously while maintaining fairness, may have additional challenges. In this webcast, NJC faculty Professor Kelly Tait and Judge David Suntag will share some best practices to make this process easier.

After attending this webcast, the participants will be able to:

  • Make ethical and effective “reasonable accommodations” for self-represented litigants;
  • Utilize the four keys: roadmap, plain language, modified procedures & finishing effectively.
