Litigants in Person – Inherent problems with the justice system

Home » News » Litigants in Person – Inherent problems with the justice system

Matthew Richardson has authored an article on the fundamental problems caused by the removal of legal aid, including the increase in litigants in person, which has been published on Family Law Week.

In his article, Matthew examines the justice system post-LASPO and how rising advocacy costs are diminishing access to justice and jeopardising the fairness of the legal system. He writes “There is a vital difference between having a good case and finding and presenting that case. The fairness in a dispute can only be identified by the court if the court is able to clearly perceive the different sides. If a party is inherently less able to find the crucial evidence and connect it to the relevant law, then that party is inherently less able to present their case in the best way.”
