Young people’s experience of law-related events: The role of public legal education

This paper aims to improve understanding of the need for and value of public legal education amongst young people as an essential component of access to justice. Drawing from studies on the role of public legal education in fostering resilience (understood as the ability to overcome difficulties and persevere in the face of risk and adversity), the findings suggest that public legal education can provide young people with the core emotional and practical skills needed to improve their overall life-chances. Improving levels of legal capability through the provision of legal education not only means individuals are better equipped to cope with risks and challenges, but also to recognise and take advantage of the opportunities they encounter.
