Public Legal Education (PLE)

"Public Legal Education and Information (PLEI) is defined as 'an activity that seeks in a systematic way to provide people with the opportunity to obtain information about the law and the justice system in a form that is timely and appropriate to their needs, but does not include advocacy or representation on behalf of individuals, nor the provision of legal advice' (Department of Justice Access to Justice Agreement 2007-2009)."
