Public legal education: interview with Martin Jones
In the book I mention the importance of improving public knowledge about law and the legal system, and the work being undertaken by PLENet, the Public Legal Education Network. See http://www.plenet.org.uk/ for information about the network.
In this podcast, I talk to Martin Jones, PLENet’s director, about its work, and the initiatives the network is taking. He emphasises that the focus is on giving people the confidence to deal with the legal system in a positive and constructive way, particularly those who may not have been involved with the law before. He also warns that public expenditure cuts may restrict the ability of PLENet to continue its programme of work.
