Just A Click Away, a Canada-wide initiative on public legal education and information (PLEI) being coordinated by Courthouse Libraries BC, is organizing a two-day intensive conference in Vancouver, British Columbia on February 23 & 24, 2011.
The conference is about how to use Internet and social media technologies to better educate the general public about the law and provide resources for individuals to solve legal problems.
As a run up to the conference, Just A Click Away has been running a webinar series that features different approaches being used to provide online PLEI.
So far, 2 webinars have been offered (they are archived online):
- Tuesday January 11, 2011 featuring Clicklaw (British Columbia) and CLEONet (Ontario)
- Tuesday January 25, 2011 featuring LawNet (formerly ACJNet – Canada and Alberta), PovNet (poverty law) and LawHelp.org (US pro bono network)
The next webinar is on February 8, 2011 and features Educaloi (Quebec) and www.inmylanguage.org (Ontario).
