|The seminar will be presented by Nicola Matheson Durrant, who has a BA(Hons) in Law and has made legal history twice, to date. Firstly, she became the first ever professional, non-lawyer divorce and family law adviser and trainer. Secondly, and the reason she appeared on BBC Breakfast in 2015 and in the news media world wide, she discovered and reported the software fault within the government's online court form for calculating assets and liabilities - the notorious Form A. Her discovery resulted in a change being made to the Form E, thereby providing an avenue for a review by the court of previous, possibly wrongly decided cases.
Nicola has been assisting Litigants in Person both as a McKenzie Friend and a para legal from 1986 to the present day.
Nicola created, designed and ran the UK’s first training course and franchise package for career Professional McKenzie Friends and is intensely involved in training, mentoring and developing lay legal advisers. Her specialisation is in complex financial remedy proceedings and Children Act proceedings, particularly cases of alleged parental alienation.
|Nicola is Founder/Director/Employee of the Family Law Clinic Ltd (Fully Insured) - Professional McKenzie Friends - which is run so that litigants in person can have an affordable alternative to Solicitors GBP 93ph or GBP 750 for 10 hours. |
She also offers Pro Bono services in cases of extreme hardship.
