A Delicate Balance: Strategies for Dealing with Self-Represented Litigants
Legal proceedings that involve self-represented parties bring unique challenges. This paper addresses how to effectively engage with self-represented litigants in foreclosure proceedings. It discusses privacy issues, considerations when advising self-represented litigants, and common concerns and responses of self-represented litigants. It also provides case law examples that may be relied on when dealing with parties taking advantage of their self-represented litigant status.
This paper is part of a collection presented at LESA’s Foreclosure Fundamentals seminar in Edmonton on May 18, 2017 and in Calgary on May 23, 2017.
