Developing capable citizens: The role of public legal education, The Report of the PLEAS Task Force (UK)

PLEAS (Public Legal Education and Support) was formed to examine strategies for PLE in the United Kingdom. In 2006, PLEAS Task Force members took a year to define public legal education (PLE) and make the case for PLE across government, among policy makers, within the legal, advice, and education professions, and in the volunteer and community sectors. Through meetings, research exercises, and presentations, the Task Force assessed the strengths and weaknesses of PLE. This report describes PLE, its goals, challenges, and strategies for its implementation. The Task Force recommends that an independent agency be created to implement a PLE development strategy and that a PLE Centre be established with statutory powers, funded by the government. The Centre would be governed by a partnership of all key PLE stakeholders. As well, the Task Force recommends that a not-for-profit company be established to take PLE forward.
