Unrepresented Litigants

Discharge duties in fairness, says Cannings

Justice David Cannings of the National and Supreme Court of PNG made the comments recently in Port Moresby when doing a presentation at the Judicial Conference on ‘Unrepresented litigants and what the courts can do’ to assist people who bring cases before the courts .

An unrepresented litigant is a person who is a party to a legal proceeding who does not have a lawyer to represent them.

He said in PNG, the problems regarding litigants in person are not nearly as great as those in other countries.
