Welcome! We are broadcasting live from the SRL pre conference at the Equal Justice Conference. (At least, we hope we are!!) Our pre-conference webcast has been broken into two sections, before and after lunch, links below.
Webcast now over. We hope to make available on an archived basis.

All times Eastern time:
This pre-conference brings together court, private and pro bono bar and legal aid practitioners in self-represented litigation. Educational sessions will cover a broad range of innovations, research, and collaborations, with a particular focus on the implications for state and local programs of changes in the national environment.
A significant portion of the time will be spent in sharing and group problem solving. Those planning to attend are welcome to suggest additional sessions. The pre-conference is open to all practitioners, including those working for and with courts, law and public libraries, law schools, and in unbundled representation, regardless of their participation in the Self-Represented Litigation Network. While we strongly encourage folks to register for, and attend, the whole Equal Justice Conference, you can register for the pre-conference alone.
