The above workshop is delivered in a very interactive, safe and friendly manner. With so much mis-information out there especially across social media channels we are a respected and trusted resource enhancing legal literacy, life skills and social education.

At all times we have an open floor for debate and viewpoints which leads to a very engaging and interactive workshop for all involved.

We believe through debate and open conversation students will gain a fuller understanding of the personal implications of their actions and behaviours as well as their rights.

Young people understanding and engaging with the law is our core objective.

Adult Education & PrisonEd

Community and further education workshops for adult learners.

LawEd undertakes in taking the law further connecting our communities by both educational and training methods.

Community Education is a process of personal and community development, transformation, empowerment, social change and collective responsiveness. It is grounded on principles of justice, equality and inclusiveness.

This course strives to show that the law provides for and regulates so many things that it is often taken for granted such as, the houses we live in, the transport we use to more substantial matters such as the protection of the family, succession and consumer rights.
