Small Steps towards Big GoalsNSRLP
We are excited to introduce a new regular feature to our E-blasts: documenting the most interesting and encouraging developments impacting Access to Justice for SRLs as we come across them.
With a goal as big as Access to Justice, all incremental steps should be promoted as widely as possible.
- NuLawLab at Northeastern University is in the final stages of developing a SRL Game that will give SRLs the chance to practice courtroom appearances and be guided through the most effective and appropriate ways to present their cases. For further information, contact Executive Director Dan Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sacramento Public Law Library became the first public library system which we are aware of in North America to produce professional videos to assist SRLs:“TRIAL PREP” VIDEO FOR SELF-REPRESENTED LITIGANTS”
- The Supreme Court of British Columbia recently posted a public advertisement for a Master and added the stipulation that “a Master must manage a busy court and the expectations of members of the Bar and self-represented litigants in a fair, firm, and balanced way, taking into account access to justice concerns”. Read about it in Law Courts Center’s “Briefly” newsletter.
