Litigants in Person

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.
