There is nothing to prevent a person from representing himself or herself before a court in civil cases. However, the function of the Legal Aid Board is to provide legal aid and advice in civil cases to persons of modest means at little cost.
A person who, for whatever reason, has to attend court or is contemplating court action may wish to access information via the Courts Service website (www.courts.ie). There are leaflets on "Going to Court" available in any courthouse.
