Research strengthens the case for targeted, timely Public Legal Education and Information
Law for Life worked with researchers Pascoe Pleasence, Nigel Balmer and Catrina Denvir to analyse data from the Civil and Social Justice Panel Survey 2010 and 2012, focusing on the implications of the data for Public Legal Education and Information. Law for Life defines Public Legal Education as education that ‘equips people with the knowledge, skills and the confidence needed to successfully resolve legal problems encountered in day to day life’. The study established that public understanding of the law is low, that legal problems are prevalent and that law related problems are more difficult to resolve than people expect.
