Law for Life: The Foundation for Public Legal Education is an education and information charity that aims to increase access to justice by providing everyone with an awareness of their legal rights together with the confidence and skills to assert them. Rather than focusing on teaching the technical detail of the law, we emphasize developing a general skill set that enables people to prevent and deal with legal issues as they arise. With laws and regulations often changing rapidly, it is these skills that are most important.

In this presentation, we will share information about our most recent PLE initiatives delivered to organizations working with migrant communities in the UK. We will explore the process of identifying legal needs, learning challenges and involve you in an interactive exercise
