Public Legal Education - sharing best practice in changing times
AbstractI hope that this editorial finds you safe and well. Undoubtedly these are scary and challenging times and the global pandemic has had far reaching and long lasting consequences for us all. In times of crisis, inequalities in our society are highlighted and it is increasingly important that individuals have access to legal information in order to be able to deal with legal issues they face, seek redress and know how and when to seek support. Public legal education plays a vital role in this. It is therefore important that our work continues and that we support each other by sharing best practice and resources in a time when we may have to revisit or reconsider our normal practice and programmes.
