Event description

Description

We invite you to join us for a forum for community and legal workers interested in public legal education and information (PLE or PLEI) that will take place in Toronto on Thursday, October 26, 2017. We will gather at the Chestnut Conference Centre (Dundas St. W. and Chestnut St.) to hone our PLEI skills, connect with new resources, and share strategies for helping our communities. Registration will open at 9:00am.

Ontario's PLE Learning Exchange, a partnership of CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario) and OJEN (the Ontario Justice Education Network), are hosting this event, supported by The Action Group on Access to Justice (TAG).

The sessions we are planning include:

  • Legal information and legal advice: how are direct service workers filling the gaps?

  • The role of "Trusted Intermediaries": update and feedback on recent research

  • Skills cafe: hands-on learning about clear language, social media for PLEI, and other skills

  • Strategy swap: how to help clients when asserting their legal rights works against them

The early bird registration fee will be $10 and is available until Friday, September 29, 2017. Registration is open until Friday, October 13, 2017. We will provide a light breakfast, lunch, and other refreshments. Due to a limited number os space available, we are asking that only one person per organization attends. Please check with your colleagues before registering.

We have a limited number of travel subsidies available for participants from non-profit, community-based organizations that are located outside of the GTA (maximum one person per organization). These subsidies will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To request a travel subsidy, please register by Friday, September 29, 2017.

Please email Miscia at miscia.sullivan@cleo.on.ca for more information - and check CLEO’s PLE Learning Exchange website for updates.
