Buachaill :

1. A litigant in person is any lay person without a right of audience in court who conducts their case on their own. It does not include a situation where a barrister is employed under the Direct Access Scheme, as this involves hiring someone to do the work who has a right of audience in the courts. However, a struck off solicitor no longer has a right of audience in the courts. So, if the struck off solicitor were to conduct the case on his own, unaided, then the struck off solicitor would be acting as a litigant in person in such circumstances.
