Who We Are
The Self-Represented Litigation Network (SRLN) works to ensure that the challenges of serving the self-represented are viewed as critical issues to be addressed throughout the justice system. The Network operates through a number of Working Groups, who, with support and leadership from the SRLN Coordinator and Executive Committee, have produced numerous products for use by the justice system as a whole.
This site is the communications hub for Working Groups, the Executive Committee, the Advisory Committee and those who have an interest in the operational side of SRLN. Please visit our sister site selfhelpsupport.org to access the many resources available to support the work of the justice community.
