Colorado Funds Pro Se Clinic to Aid Self-Represented Parties

Colorado’s Federal Pro Se Clinic, an initiative designed to level the playing field for unrepresented litigants by providing improved access to justice, will be funded through attorney admission fees and a new $50 fee that will be collected every two years from all attorney members of the Colorado District Court.

The goal of the clinic is to supply pro se litigants with services including legal advice and counseling, assistance with understanding court orders, motions and other pleadings, and deciphering rules, codes, and statutes (including federal and state laws) pertaining to the litigant’s case.

It is important to note that while the services offered are extensive, they do not include court representation.

Pro se litigants may make appointments by phone or on the Colorado Bar Association’s Pro Se Legal Clinic page.

In some instance, the fee will be waived.

More information is available on the court’s homepage and in the press release.
