New Resources at CPLEA


LawNow is pleased to announce the creation of a new Department, called New Resources at CPLEA,  which will be a permanent addition to each issue.   Each post will highlight new materials at CPLEA. All resources are free and available for download. We hope that this will raise awareness of the many resources that CPLEA produces to further our commitment to public legal education in Alberta. For a listing of all CPLEA resources go to:

CPLEA has created a series of resources for frontline service providers working with vulnerable individuals. The five booklet series includes:

  • The Canadian Legal system;
  • Helping Clients with Legal issues;
  • Family Law in Alberta;
  • Criminal Law in Alberta; and
  • Renting in Alberta.

Each of these booklets gives information about the law and the legal system in clear, concise language, gives practical suggestions for how service providers can help their clients with legal issues, and lists further resources that might be helpful.

Users can view and download these publications for free or they can be ordered in booklet form  by visiting
