IARS' Law, Rights and Policy training programmes is at the forefront in cutting edge Public Legal Education (PLE) for young people. In 2009, IARS published a piece of research Measuring Young People's Legal Capability, which illustrated the difficulties young people face when trying to navigate their way through the law related issues that they face on a daily basis.
The IARS programme builds on that research and focuses on developing young people's knowledge, skills and attitudes to resolve law related issues by themselves. The programmes also enable young people to engage with overarching legal and social policy concepts, which are applicable to many topics.
