Resource for PLE Trainers: A practical guide to public legal education
Law for Life's new resource, A practical guide to public legal education (PLE) explains the nature and value of public legal education and provides some simple techniques and materials through which people’s understanding about the law and their skills to use legal remedies might be developed.
It is divided into four sections:
Section one: explains the nature of public legal education: what it is – and what it is not.
Section two: indicates ways of developing and teaching public education.
Section three: provides examples and links to some of the materials already developed by Law for Life, with guidance on ways in which they may be used to develop standalone courses.
Section four: offers some good practice ideas when evaluating public legal education courses.
We hope that this guide will provide guidance and materials for anyone wishing to develop some form of PLE within a charitable, work, or educational setting.
