Evaluation of Public Legal Education and Information: An Annotated Bibliography

This annotated bibliography covers academic literature, government documents, and program reports on the evaluation of public legal education and information (PLEI). The review focuses on the Canadian PLEI context and materials from the previous five years. Following an overview of each document, the annotations are organized into four themes: (1) challenges to PLEI evaluation, (2) connections between PLEI goals and its evaluation, (3) challenges of funders’ evaluation requirements, and (4) evaluation methods. The report highlights approaches to evaluation, challenges facing PLEI assessment, and research and knowledge gaps. Given the difficulties of PLEI evaluation, there are very few comprehensive evaluations of programs and materials. Where applicable, the bibliographic entries identify the elements that are directly useful to PLEI evaluation. These tools can serve as guidelines for an evaluative framework and can be helpful for developing standards and methodology design.
