Advancing the Cause of Litigants in Person takes Time, Money and Guts

The more I learn about Maurice’s experiences and challenges, the more I respect the enormous scope of emotions that he had to muster – to cope while fending for himself.

A lot is due to the “adversarial system” that is operating in the UK, which Australian author Evan Whitton describes as being corrupt and wants to see replaced by the Continental truth seeking one.

Since ultimately, lawyers are doing their job to get paid, they are often fighting each other before the public purse as the joint pot of gold.

But when litigants in person (LIPs) come along, they fight without being paid for their time. Maurice has just had a bill from a lawyer who charges for his time travelling and WAITING! At £195 / hour.

Jeff Lampert has been fraudulently bankrupted and is learning how to fight “within the system” as an LIP. In this process he has received these guidance notes from a Court. He assumes they can be used generally throughout the legal syatem.
