Following the government abolishing legal aid for most family court applications about children, finances and property, there have been many more people going to court unrepresented.

They are called Litigants in Person (LIPs). As they have no legal training they often do not know the court procedures and what facts are relevant in law. This has slowed down court proceedings as they often take longer where no lawyers are involved.

To help these folk a mediator/barrister has produced 3 practical videos to help them understand the court process. They can be found on YouTube (click on the link below to open the video) :

1. Preparing for your first court hearing.

2. The Hearing Itself.

3. Giving evidence and challenging evidence.
