The Master of the Rolls, Lord Dyson MR, has issued Practice Guidance: Terminology for Litigants in Person. It provides that the term 'Self-Represented Litigant' should no longer be used in courts. The correct nomenclature, going forward, reverts to 'Litigant in Person'.
Technically this applies to criminal, civil and family courts - but doubtless tribunals will also follow it.
