    Small Claims Court is a do-it-yourself system for the average Canadian without legal knowledge. However, depending on how complicated your case is, there are a few legal words that you may encounter, such as
    * Plaintiff: the person who is suing
    * Defendant: the person who is being sued
    * Plaintiff's claim or Statement of Claim: The form used to make a demand in Small Claims Court. My Legal Briefcase will fill out a copy of this form for you to file in court.
