Guide for Self-Represented Litigants with Disabilities

Posted by: NSRLP Category: Resources for SRLs, SRL Resources Comments: 0 Post Date: November 1, 2017

We hear all too often from self-represented litigants who are also persons with disabilities (PWDs) – these litigants are forced to deal with the “double-whammy” of navigating the justice system alone, while simultaneously facing the physical and systemic barriers that PWDs deal with on a daily basis.

This primer, “Navigating the Justice System: A Guide for Self-Represented Litigants with Disabilities” is designed for people seeking justice system accommodations for a recognized disability, either physical or cognitive. The Primer is meant to be a practical legal guide to accommodation requests. This resource includes (often hard-to-find) sources for accommodation information, and registering complaints about failures to accommodate, in every province and territory (including email addresses, phone numbers, and web addresses).”
