It has sometimes been said that civil litigation is the field of law that attempts to right the wrongs that have occurred. If there is a victim, civil litigation seeks compensation. If there is a financial dispute over limited resources, civil litigation seeks the fairest settlement possible.
While the principles of civil litigation are high-minded and egalitarian, the reality is that civil litigation is often an unwanted intrusion upon our everyday lives. Participants are caught up in complex rules that can drag out disputes, require the disclosure of sensitive and private documents, and impose arbitrary deadlines fixed to serious consequences. Unrepresented litigants are at a severe disadvantage.
