This research report presents the findings of an exploratory study into young people’s legal capability. The need for Public Legal Education for groups of marginalised young people was investigated, and recommendations, based on the findings, are suggested.
The evidence suggests that young people had weaknesses in knowledge, skills and attitude, which lead to a reduced legal capability. The value of public legal education is highlighted while best practices are discussed for piloting and further research.
