I’ve been thinking pro se litigants must be doing better in court these days.
Lawyers have begun to complain about the pains we’re causing them, and how many of us they’re having to face. They’re sharing tips on how to beat us, setting traps based on their superior knowledge of procedure and the arcane rules of court.
To my mind, there aren’t nearly enough of us in the courts. I can’t count the number of companies I would’ve sued or claims I would’ve fought off had I known years ago what I know now.
Given the injustices we see every day, people ought to be knocking down the courthouse doors.
The truth, as you know, is that many of us are knocking down the doors. But with opposing lawyers ready to pounce as soon as we screw up, fair days in court are every bit as scarce as hen’s teeth.
We need to step up and do better in court.
That’s why we built Courtroom5. Our membership is designed to help level the playing field so that people who represent themselves can get their cases heard fairly.
But membership isn’t for everyone. Some just need the lay of the land, a few breadcrumbs to follow, a system for analyzing a case and creating a strategy to win.
If that’s you, join us for a 5-day short course on the framework and skill sets we use to move our cases through the courts and avoid the traps lawyers set for us.
We’ve distilled the entire process of litigation down to about 90 minutes of in-depth instruction, packed with real-life examples of both failure and success, delivered in short videos over five days.
Here’s what recent course participant CE Drake had to say:
James, another participant, shared the following:
In the course, we cover the common traps to avoid, how to decide what to file when, the key skills you need to win, and how to apply those skills to your case.
Practice the habits of successful pro se litigants, and start representing yourself better in court, the way your case deserves.
