A group of like affected persons are considering taking a major UK public body to Court on grounds of discrimination and breach of human rights. We could also be joined by similarly affected persons from outside the UK. Whilst I don't wish to go into the specifics of the case in public at this point my question relates to us representing ourselves. We have taken advice from Counsel and it is believed we have a good case as there are gaping holes in the public body's policies, practices and procedures. There is also case law on our side. However, the cost of obtaining even this small piece of advice was far from small and showed us clearly that the case itself would run into many, many thousands (well in excess of Â£ 50K and probably near Â£ 100K and that's if we win - with their grossly over-inflated costs I would dread to think what the total costs bill would be if we lost and had to pay their costs). The outcome of this case could have significant implications on international law and would therefore be undoubtedly high profile. As a result we will undoubtedly have a fight on our hands and this could be a drawn out process, again hiking up the costs. There are a number of Appeals in process with the public body at the moment and as soon as one of these is refused (as expected) this will be the trigger for the Action, with the other like affected persons being joined as interested parties. So, as this case would have to go before the High Court, can we represent ourselves and how would we go about this?
