Litigants in Person

Litigants in Person comprises of student volunteers who work within Leicester County Court assisting individuals who have chosen to represent themselves during their case.

 

Community Legal Companions accompany litigants into court proceedings to take notes, fill out court forms, and prepare legal bundles.

 

This project provides both law and non-law students with an opportunity to gain real, practical work experience within the legal sector. 

Areas of Assistance: 

o    Family Law 

o    Small Claims 

o    Divorce Law 

o    Suspended Evictions
