Pro se litigation can be challenging for everyone involved.  Pro se litigants are to be held to the same standards as lawyers but may struggle with the complexities of federal court litigation.  Judges and opposing attorneys may struggle to find an appropriate balance between holding pro se parties accountable to applicable rules and procedure and affording them a measure of leeway since they are unrepresented. This panel will offer perspectives from all sides and insight into best practices for giving these cases their best opportunity to move forward as smoothly as possible.
