Guide for Pro Se Litigants (July 2019)
This guide is designed to serve as an introductory resource for individuals who are considering bringing a legal action on behalf of themselves in federal court. This is known as “proceeding pro se,” pro se being a Latin term meaning “for oneself” or “on one’s own behalf.” The guide was compiled by Marc Walkow 2L, who is the 2019 Pro Se Legal Services Fellow at NYLS and is affiliated with the Impact Center for Public Interest Law. Some content has been adapted from materials created by the New York Legal Assistance Group’s Legal Clinic for Pro Se Litigants.
