This year marks Community Legal Education Association’s 30th anniversary. We began the celebrations with our Public Legal Education Awards Reception. We honoured Reeh Taylor, Q.C., who received the Advocate of Public Legal Education Award and teachers, Gerald McDowell and Debbie Wake received the Public Legal Education Award.
Gord Mackintosh, Minister of Justice and Attorney General, presented the award to Reeh Taylor, Q.C.
James Allum, Minister of Education and Advanced Learning, presented the awards to Gerald McDowell and Debbie Wake.
Former recipients of CLEA’s Public Legal Education Awards include Roland Penner, Q.C. and Darren Klapak.
We believe that without public legal education there can be no access to justice.
