Tools to support the PLE community and help develop effective public legal education. Includes written materials from simple fliers to more detailed self-help materials; increasingly PLE projects use audio and video to get their message across.
We can help any organisation keen to develop or improve its public legal education and information work. Whether you need help designing and delivering a training course, producing high quality information, or building the capacity to produce brilliant PLE projects within your own staff team.
Research and theory are two of the essentials of better PLE. Only by improving research, both theoretical and empirical, and growing the body of researchers interested in the subject, will PLE develop as a unique discipline.
Public legal education projects come in all shapes and sizes. They could be a campaign, an information pack, a training course, classroom teaching, a theatre production, a TV programme, a mentoring scheme, a website, or many other activities.
