diyLAW (formerly Help4LiPs) provides litigants in person with information via its website. A litigant in person (LiP) is an individual, company or organisation that is not represented in court by a solicitor or barrister. Help4LiPs (H4L) was conceived of by a couple of Litigants in Person over lunch and then ratified as a concept in an informal meeting at The Royal Courts of Justice (RCJ) with Directors of the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), Personal Support Unit (PSU) and High Court. Since that time, with early seed money from the London Legal Trust and a few private individuals and continuous loans from the co-founders Brad Meyer and Jeff Lampert, H4L has been attracting, capturing, simplifying and re-presenting (via the web) some of the expert knowledge of legal professionals. In 2017, Help4LiPs has become diyLAW.
diyLAW provides litigants in person with information about legal procedures exclusively through its website. Please note diyLAW only provides information not legal advice.
