Research database

With help from Ryerson Law Research Centre, CLEO has put together an annotated bibliography of research on public legal education and information. This is a work in progress and we continue to add research reports on an ongoing basis.

To search for a report by keyword, use the “Search” text bar at the top right hand corner of the page. Or, to filter the database by authoring organization, topic, country, date or keyword in the report title, see below.

Help us make this a useful and comprehensive resource. Let us know if we’ve missed a report, or if your organization has conducted  research relating to PLE that’s not included here. You can reach us at info@plelearningexchange.ca. Thank you!
