Second Judges Journal Article: Towards Best Practices in Complex SRL Cases

I am happy to announce that the Winter 2012 issue of Judges Journal contains the second of my two post-Turner articles.  Here is a link to the full article.  It is titled:

A NEW DAY FOR JUDGES AND THE SELF-REPRESENTED:
Toward Best Practices in Complex Self-Represented Cases 

The new article includes discussion of how judges can handle cases with an attorney on one side, cases with angry or mentally disturbed litigants, as well as complex and jury trials.

The link to the first of the two articles, which deals with less complex situations, is here.

I very much hope that the two papers, particularly when taken together, will help judges deal with these situations in ways that enhance access to justice while maintaining neutrality.  Even more importantly, I hope it will encourage a robust sharing of ideas about how best to provide access in these situations.  I welcome thoughts and ideas, either in Comments, or by email to me.
