This webinar will discuss the updated Ensuring the Right to Be heard for Self-Represented Litigants: Judicial Curriculum modules. Judge Karen Adam of the Arizona Superior Court in Pima County and Justice Laurie Zelon of the California Court of Appeal will be presenting. The 2013 curriculum is based on a 2008 judicial curriculum, developed by the Self-Represented Litigation Network with funding from the State Justice Institute and launched at a Conference at Harvard Law School. It integrates the Presentation, Bench Guide, Handbook of Resource Materials and Handbook of Optional Activities. The 2013 version, developed by the National Center for State Courts' Center for Court Access to Justice for All with funding from the Public Welfare Foundation, includes updated information, case law and an updated list of resources and is divided into easy to use modules. Both versions of the curriculum are grounded in courtroom research and utilize the experiences of hundreds of judges who have shared their perspectives, ideas, and suggestions.
