Pro se clerk


Pro se clerk

A "pro se" clerk is a clerk of the court, employed by the court and found in the courthouse. This clerk assists people appearing "pro se" (without lawyers) to participate in legal actions by providing forms which need to be filled out and explaining some basic rules. "Pro se" clerks are not always lawyers themselves, and so are usually prohibited from providing legal or strategic advice.
