Featured in this episode of Pro Se Nation: understand the law for oneself is Sonja Ebron, co-founder of Courtroom5, an online resource for those seeking to represent themselves without an attorney. After going pro se many times in various cases, Ms. Ebron and her co-founder Debra Slone were inspired to create a website with resources to help those facing the same challenges they encountered. The motto of their site is 'You don't have to go it alone!'

Producer MaryLynn Schiavi hosts the program and discusses with Ms. Ebron such questions as: What do self-represented litigants most need to pay attention to? What are some of the biggest mistakes pro se litigants make? What kind of behavior should they expect from lawyers, judges and judicial staff and what are some of the potential changes in the legal system that could help those who choose to go forward without a lawyer?
