A proposal for a new law:

Section 1) It is confusing to the public when non-governmental organizations call themselves "courts". Participants in these courts often do not recognize that the "judgments" of these "courts" are not legally binding. Often, the participants do not seek further legal help from the government because they think their issue has already been settled. THEREFORE, any non-governmental organization calling itself a "court" will be fined 1,000 pounds upon the first violation, and will be closed upon the second violation.

Section 2) Any "court" which reads the following statement aloud to the participants before conducting its business shall be exempted from Section 1.

"This is not a court with legal authority. You may choose to obey the ruling of this court, but you are not required to. If you are not satisfied with the result here, you may be able to find help in the Courts of England."
