Legal awareness, also known as legal consciousness, is the empowerment of individuals regarding issues involving the law. Legal awareness helps to promote consciousness of legal culture, participation in the formation of laws and the rule of law.Legal consciousness is defined by Ewick and Silbey as the process by which people make sense of their experiences by relying on legal categories and concepts. People do this even when they are not familiar with the details and minutia of law or the legal system. They explain that there are cultural schemas provided by law that people use to make sense of their experiences. They refer to this as legality. The concept of legality includes ""the meanings, sources, authority and cultural practices that are commonly recognized as legal, regardless of who employs them or for what ends."" These meanings and sources and different ways of knowing and understanding enable people to make sense of what happens to them and what that might mean in terms of their rights and options. This process of understanding legal experiences occurs within a larger ecosystem in which there are disputes over meaning and values. Seron and Munger explain that “”in addition, class may affect legal consciousness: Law may mean different things depending on an individual's location in the various hierarchies of status, prestige, and knowledge associated with membership in a social class.Public legal education, sometimes called civics education, comprises a range of activities intended to build public awareness and skills related to law and the justice system. This term also refers to the fields of practice and study concerned with those activities, and to a social and professional movement that advocates greater societal commitment to educating people about the law. Anna-Marie Marshall explains that “in order to realize their rights, people need to take the initiative to articulate them. This initiative, in turn, depends on the availability and the relevance of legal schema to people confronting problems.” This is because laws exist as part of a larger organizational ecosystem in which the interests of the organization as well as those of the actors become inextricably linked to the ways in which they are enacted.Distinct from the education of students in law school seeking a degree in law (which is often simply called ""legal education"") and the continuing professional education of lawyers and judges (which is sometimes called ""continuing legal education""), public legal education is principally aimed at people who are not lawyers, judges, or degree-seeking law students.The term ""public legal education"" (PLE) is related to, and may encompass, several similar terms. The terms ""public legal information"" and ""public legal education and information"" (PLEI) emphasize a difference between educating and providing information. The term ""community legal education"" is common in Australia and the United States, where it often refers to community-based public legal education activities led by legal aid organizations. The term ""law-related education"" (LRE) usually refers to public legal education in primary and secondary schools (and sometimes in higher education), as opposed to PLE for adults and outside of school.
