  • "Pro se legal representation refers to the instance of a person representing himself or herself without a lawyer in a court proceeding, whether as a defendant or a plaintiff and whether the matter is civil or criminal. Pro se is a Latin phrase meaning 'for oneself'. This status is sometimes known as propria persona (abbreviated to 'pro per'). In England and Wales the comparable status is 'litigant in person'."
