TEWLS has a strong commitment to community legal education (CLE) – we believe that by empowering women with knowledge and information about the legal system, women and the community at large will be able to better access the legal system.
CLE can increase people’s understanding and ability to engage with legal processes and the legal system. It can help explain and foster awareness of services and legal rights, as well as understanding of specific laws for certain groups in society. A key component of CLE is also learning to identify when and where to get legal help.
CLE can take a number of forms, from informal conversations at a clinic, to running a formal presentation for students, to producing informative guides and fact sheets.
TEWLS regularly partners with other services to deliver CLE, including other non-profit service providers, as well as Government Departments.
