Launch of National Database of Professionals Assisting Self-Represented Litigants

The National Self-Represented Litigants Project (NSRLP)  has launched a National Database of Professionals Assisting SRLs that seeks to link Canadians without legal representation with legal professionals willing to offer them individualized assistance.

As explained in a November 14, 2016 blog post:
"This is an initiative that we have been working on since last spring, slowly coaxing lawyers and others to step forward and become part of the National Database so that clients can find them. Before that, since its inception in 2013 NSRLP has promoted the idea of unbundled legal services, legal coaching, the use of paralegals where appropriate, and relevant assistance by other professionals via this blog, countless speeches to law societies and bar associations, and media interviews promoting affordable legal services for the primarily self-represented."
The NSRLP comes out of the work of the University of Windsor's Dr. Julie Macfarlaneand is a a clearinghouse for information and resources related to the phenomenon of self-represented litigants.
