 Currently there is no single or fixed definition of Public Legal Education (PLE), although there is some consensus as to what PLE means and covers. In 2007, the independent Public Legal Education and Support (PLEAS) Task Force developed the following definition:

“PLE provides people with awareness, knowledge and understanding of rights and legal issues, together with the confidence and skills they need to deal with disputes and gain access to justice [and] … recognise when they may need support … and how to go about getting it.”
