Public Legal Education Society

The Ministry of Public Education coordinates annual events that celebrate and promote public awareness of the law, such as Law Day and the Silver Hammer Awards. We also offer political education resources and programs for students and teachers, including: the Teachers` Summer Institute, the Civic and Law Academy, and the LRE National Conference. Public education staff are available to provide you with the resources you need to promote public understanding of the rule of law. Simply email us at publiceducation@americanbar.org, call 312.988.5735 or click on the link to contact our committees or staff. The information provided by PLEA relates to laws specific to Saskatchewan and Canada. This is only general legal information and does not form the basis of legal advice of any kind. People seeking specific legal advice should consult a lawyer. None of these programs is, of course, perfect. They cannot cover all areas of law in all provinces and territories in Canada.

Specialized programs focus on specific areas of law or specific legal issues, such as indigenous peoples` rights, criminal law, landlord-tenant disputes, or commercial law. They cannot address these areas or issues exhaustively, written in easy-to-understand language, generally available and published in many languages. (My public law education book, JP Boyd on Family Law, for example, has about 789 printed pages, but still offers only a miniature sketch of all things family law in British Columbia!) However, these programs are a crucial part of the social infrastructure needed to ensure that the rule of law is more than an empty promise. YourLaw is a four-page client newsletter written for your clients. Each quarterly issue contains articles that alert clients to a variety of legal issues that may affect them. Divided into five main chapters, the book first examines the nature of PLE and why its provision is so central to the functioning of modern society. PLE models ranging from face-to-face teaching to the use of paper materials will then be presented, including the growing importance of electronic technology. One PLE model that has proven to be very attractive to law schools – street law – is described and analyzed in detail. The book then examines considerations for a law school that wishes to integrate PLE into its offerings, whether as part of the formal program or not.

Then the topic of evaluation is addressed – how do we know if what we are doing with PLE is effective and how it can be improved? The final chapter comes to conclusions, some written by the author and others by key figures in the PLE movement. This book provides an in-depth examination of continuing education in the context of law schools and includes a number of models that can be implemented and/or customized based on the situation and jurisprudence. Economists estimate that the unresolved problems cost the nation £13 billion over a period of three to four years. Helping people avoid problems or resolve them earlier avoids costs, stress and disruption and ensures follow-up for the justice system and society as a whole. What is shameful about all of this is that public legal education programs, at least in Canada, are poorly supported, and even worse, by governments and courts. Personally, I see an obligation to ensure that all Canadians enjoy the benefits of living in a nocracy primarily from governments rather than from not-for-profit organizations that have to beg for their budgets every year. If the government cannot write laws and judicial rules in a clear and understandable way, we end up with public legal education programs to bridge the gap between theory and reality. I just wish we were prepared to provide them with the funding they deserve. By building legal awareness, skills and self-confidence, public legal education empowers people to overcome common problems, access services, protect their rights, and help them seek redress when things go wrong. The main objective of public law education and information bodies (EPJP) is to create an informed population that is knowledgeable about the law, is able to recognize and exercise its legal rights, fulfill its legal obligations and fulfill its duties as participants in a democratic society. Do you have questions about legal issues that arise in everyday life? The public portal guides you through a series of legal issues that arise in everyday life.

Use the Legal FAQ, publications and legal questions for consumers. Almost two-thirds of the UK population are unaware of fundamental legal rights or the procedures by which they are applied. Those most affected are often those who are already disadvantaged, such as the disabled, people with literacy problems, the homeless and the elderly. ABA Legal Fact Check aims to help the media and the public find reliable answers and explanations to sometimes confusing legal questions and problems. Produced by the ABA`s Media Relations and Strategic Communications Division, it focuses on case law and legal law, as well as other precedents to separate legal fact from fiction. Each ABA legal fact-check is regularly reviewed by subject matter experts prior to publication and does not represent the official guidelines or positions of the American Bar Association, its Board of Governors, or House of Delegates. We support public law education (ECE) to raise public awareness of the law and help the public understand their rights. We participate in a number of PLE initiatives and support the PLE activities of our members. Many PLE projects aim to raise awareness about the law and their rights and how the law can help resolve disputes. Awareness-raising is an important first step, and most projects also provide advice – usually pointing to more detailed information or other sources of help and advice. Awareness campaigns may also focus on a specific change in the law, such as the government`s public awareness campaign on self-assessment, or they may aim to clear up common misunderstandings.

Increased awareness means that: people are better equipped to avoid problems and disputes; And they can take early action to prevent a problem from escalating into a bigger, more serious problem. The Teacher Portal is intended to help teachers educate their students about the law. These resources were developed by the Public Education Division of the ABA.
