      Pro Se Manual                         

Introduction

     This pamphlet is intended primarily to assist non-attorneys with the basic procedural steps which must be followed when filing an appeal or a supervisory writ application with the Third Circuit Court of Appeal. This pamphlet is not legal advice and should not be cited as legal authority. The information in this pamphlet is not intended to replace the Uniform Rules - Courts of Appeal, or the internal rules of the Third Circuit Court of Appeal, but should be used in conjunction with the rules.

     This pamphlet reflects the Uniform Rules - Courts of Appeal in effect as of January 1, 2001. The rules are always subject to change without notice. Therefore, you should consult the rules for any changes. You or your lawyer, if you are represented by one, may call the Third Circuit Clerk's Office if you have a specific procedural question about how to file your papers with the Court. Although our staff will try to help answer your procedural questions, you must remember employees of the Court of Appeal are not permitted to give legal advice or make specific recommendations to you on how you should pursue your claims on appeal, or by writ application.
