self-representation issues at the Equal Justice Conference


      The 2007 Equal Justice Conference will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado, on March 22 through 24, 2007.  The conference is co-sponsored by the American Bar Association and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association and it “brings together all components of the legal community to discuss equal justice issues as they relate to the delivery of legal services to the poor and low-income individuals in need of legal assistance. The emphasis of this Conference is on strengthening partnerships among the key players in the civil justice system.” 

This year’s theme is “Justice In A Changing, Diverse World: Preserving the rule of law through inclusive, high quality legal services to the disadvantaged.”  Pro bono and legal services program staff, judges, corporate counsel, court administrators, private lawyers, paralegals, and many others attend this event — including many self-representation practitioners and advocates.

ProfPointer Richard Zorza of has gone through the Conference’s Workshop Preview to find Sessions of Particular Interest to Self Represented Litigation Practitioners.  Included are many topics that should be of interest to shlep readers.  If you click the links below, you’ll find information on the presenters and participants for each session and a short description of the contents. I hope related materials will be available for those who cannot make the Conference.  If you do attend, feel free to share your experiences with shlep.
