ABSTRACT
In this article, the author comments on the modern civil legal system's emphasis on protecting access to courts in the U.S. The author says that the legal system in the U.S. risks defying the longstanding statutory protections afforded to the right of self-representation. The author further says that the legal system also infringes upon the constitutional right of a litigant to a meaningful opportunity to be heard.
