Subproject 8 - Tools for Self-Represented Litigants

Start – 2018 | End – 2024 Duration – 6 years

In order to overcome these difficulties, many tools are being developed in the field of citizens' self-representation and must therefore be evaluated in terms of their effectiveness, relevance and satisfaction rates of the target audience.
