Little empirical research has been done to assess the effect of increased self-representation on lawyers and the judiciary. In 2012, the Canadian Research Institute for Law and the Family worked to address this gap by issuing an online survey to Alberta lawyers asking about their experiences with self-represented litigants in the justice system. A similar survey was issued to Alberta judges in 2014. Reports on the 2012 lawyer survey, the 2014 judiciary survey, and a third comparison and analysis report are available on the CRILF website.
