National Self-Represented Litigants Project Intake Form

Although we are not currently conducting full research interviews, we are continuing to populate our database of self-represented litigants (SRL’s) with background information and demographic data collected with their consent from SRL’s who contact the Project.

If you are willing to contribute your information to our database, we shall place your answers to the following questions into our secure database. All files are assigned a number and. It is only by this number that your data is identified, unless you provide your permission for us to identify you (for example, in response to a speakers request, see (2) below)

The information that we are continuing to collect will be used for:

1. Developing further data about SRL demographics and experiences
2. Matching SRL’s to organizations and agencies requesting a speaker or a working group member or similar participation by a SRL, with permission
3. Generate quantitative data to further generate the discussion about the SRL phenomenon and access to justice issues in Canada

Thank you for taking a few moments to provide this information about yourself and your experience as a self-represented litigant.
