The Community Legal Intermediary Training Course (CLI) is a program for individuals who are often called upon to help others in the community with legal problems, whether in the role of a worker, friend or community leader. The program provides participants with basic knowledge about our laws and legal system, and informs them about the proper role of a legal intermediary.
The CLI program is sponsored by Community Legal Education Association (CLEA), a not-for-profit community agency that provides Manitobans with a variety of public legal education services.
The program is presented with the help of many talented and dedicated lawyers and other volunteer presenters. Classes for the CLI program run twice a year. The CLI course is held in the evening, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, at our office, 301 – 441 Main Street, Winnipeg. The total length of the course is 10 weeks. Participants are expected to attend all classes, unless they have given prior notice.
The cost of registration is $150.00. (Registration fees are subject to change).
The next CLI class will begin in the fall. CLEA may limit the number of registrations from any agency or organization due to space restrictions.
