Welcome to the District of Vermont's webpage for individuals representing themselves in federal court. When you proceed in court without the assistance of an attorney, you are proceeding pro se, which is Latin for "on one's own behalf."
For information about representing yourself in a civil case in this court, read our representing yourself as a pro se litigant guide.
The information on this website is intended to be informative and practical for pro se litigants and is not meant to be a substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney. The court strongly encourages you to seek legal counsel when filing a case in federal court.
