PLEA Turns 35! (Throwback Thursday)

Posted on Updated on

By Melanie Hodges Neufeld

This summer, the Public Legal Education Association (PLEA) turns 35. PLEA was incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit, non-government organization that exists to educate, inform and empower through law-related education. Our guest blogger Reche McKeague wrote a wonderful post last year about the usefulness of PLEA to lawyers as well as the public. This year PLEA also unveiled its Family Law Saskatchewan website. The website provides useful information and assists the public with their family law court forms.

Congratulations PLEA on 35 years of producing valuable public legal information!
