Long live the Litigant in Person

Some of the readership may have heard there was a move by the Civil Justice Council to rebrand LiP’s “Self Representing Litigants”.

 

This is now not going to happen. Lord Dyson, Master of the Rolls has stated:

 

“The term ‘Litigant in Person’ (LiP) should continue to be the sole term used to describe individuals who exercise their right to conduct legal proceedings on their own behalf “

 

This sensible decision is welcome as it was important to clear this up before “J day” as it is widely expected that there will be many more LiPs as a result of the costs reforms.
