What is a McKenzie Friend

A McKenzie Friend is a person who comes into court with you. There is nothing to stop you asking your best friend to come along to support you. S/he would have to submit a form to the Court with her/his CV and the Court may or may not allow her/him to come in with you.

However there are some people who are full time McKenzie friends. Some charge, some give their services pro-bono which means free of charge.

    The Charity does NOT act on behalf of McKenzie Friends.

    The Charity can not be held responsible for any actions or omissions undertaken by individuals acting as McKenzie Friends.
    It is essential that anyone wishing to use the services of a McKenzie Friend relies upon their own assessments in relation to competence, cost and availability.
