You do not need a lawyer to represent you in court. If you do not have a lawyer, you will have to do everything that a lawyer would do to prepare your case and appear in court. For example, you will need to learn about:
- The court system and court procedures.
- The law that applies to your case (this will involve legal research).
- The evidence you need to prove your case.
- What will happen if you win or lose your case?
