After a smooth successful pilot project, the LIP (litigant in person) portal is set to go to public beta mode as soon as next Monday 26th March This will mean that the service will be available to all litigants in person to use.
The litigant in person online court portal is specifically for claims of up to £10,000 and can either be entered in person or by a legal representative.
The pilot, has been used by a total of 1,828 people with most users being satisfied with the service and 1,035 claims being issued online.
The online system has, however, demonstrated that claims made online are more likely to be defended; this has meant the default judgment percentage has dropped from 53% to just 24%.
