Assessment of Informational Handouts

Assessment of Informational Handouts for Self-Represented Litigants

In 2002, the Society carried out an assessment of informational handouts designed for self-represented litigants and produced by Judge Takahashi of the Provincial Court of BC in 2001. They could previously be found on the Provincial Court of BC's website.

Our assessment determined if and how the materials should be revised and whether self-represented litigants, judges and the administration of justice have benefited from access to these handouts.

To do this, we implemented questionnaires and interviews in the Kelowna courthouse, Kamloops courthouse, Surrey courthouse and the Prince George courthouse. The assessment was completed in March 2003.

The revised documents are available in our Self-Help Centre under Representing Yourself in Court.
