We thought it might be helpful to post some questions we get asked a lot:
Q: Is Public Legal Education the same as Legal Aid?
A: No. PLE is grant funded by the Alberta Law Foundation to provide legal information, resources, and seminars to the NE Region of Alberta.
Q: Is there a cost to attend seminars?
A: Generally, all seminars are free to attend. However, in some cases (such as larger events hosted at the college) we do charge a nominal fee to cover lunch and refreshments.
Q: Do you provide legal advise?
A: Unfortunately, no! We are not lawyers. What we CAN do is get you connected to finding answers to your legal questions.The information in this website is intended as general legal information only, not as legal advice. Every situation is unique and involves individual legal issues. If you need legal advice, you should consult a lawyer.
Q: So what exactly can PLE do for my community and me?
A: PLE can help you find the answers to your legal questions by giving you information and resources or by getting you connected with agencies/professionals who can help you. We can also assist in bringing legal presenters to communities, schools, and agencies for minimal or no cost.
Q: How do I do I set up a community presentation with PLE?
A: It’s easy! Just call or email us. We have a toll free number, direct line as well as email on the contact page of this website.
Please continue to send us your questions and we will add them to this category.
