Navigating the legal system can be a daunting experience, especially for those who are representing themselves in court, also known as litigants in person (LiP). Unfortunately, access to justice has become even more challenging for many people due to the reduction of legal aid following the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (LASPO) passed in 2012.
At Law for Life, we recognise that many litigants in person face significant barriers when it comes to accessing justice. These can include language barriers, lack of knowledge of legal procedures, and financial constraints. We believe that everyone has the right to access justice, regardless of their background or circumstances.
At Law for Life, we believe that the best way to support litigants in person is to empower them to take control of their own legal affairs. Our services are designed to be accessible and user-friendly, with a focus on providing practical assistance that helps litigants in person build their confidence and navigate the legal system on their own terms.
We are committed to working with communities and stakeholders to ensure that the legal system is accessible and equitable for all. By providing support and resources to litigants in person, we are helping to level the playing field and ensure that everyone has access to justice.
