Paragraph (l) of section 32(1) enables such court rules to provide for a party to proceedings which relate to an attachment to be represented in court by a person who is neither an advocate nor a solicitor (i.e. by a “lay representative”). The section is amended to enable court rules to provide for lay representation in proceedings relating to interim attachment, attachment, money attachment, land attachment and residual attachment.
