Jonathan Djanogly calls on the Government to simplify court process for litigants in person


3rd November 2015

Jonathan Djanogly calls on the Government to help simplify and demystify the court process that currently makes it so difficult for individuals who are not represented in court by a solicitor or barrister.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): There are longstanding and very important issues relating to litigants in person that go back much further than the LASPO Act. What actions are the Government taking to simplify and demystify the court process, and to take away the complicated legalities that make it so difficult for litigants in person?

Mr Vara: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend, who was a very distinguished Minister in the Ministry of Justice not so long ago. He is absolutely right. The concept of litigants in person is not new: it has applied for many years, indeed decades. To demystify the court process, we have put better processes in place—online guidance, guidance from court officers and judicial training—to ensure as much support from the judiciary and other legal advisers as possible.
