Legal awareness, sometimes referred to as public legal education or legal education, is the empowerment of individuals with respect to issues that affect the law. [1] Legal awareness helps promote awareness of legal culture, participation in legal education and the rule of law. [2] [3] In India, MARG (Multiple Action Research Group), an organization committed to empowerment, uses the Internet and social networking sites to empower Internet users. The organization publishes “Friday Facts” every Friday on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. These posts/images focus on citizens` rights and all other important information about the laws in India. On the Lesser Importance of Legal Competence in Legal Education in the United States, Leonard J. The longtime law professor at Quinnipiac University School of Law said, “Law students, law firms, consumers of legal services, and society as a whole would benefit from a legal profession composed of and dominated by people who are adept at U.S. law, its history, and jurisprudence. However, legal competence is not encouraged primarily because it is not considered necessary for the exercise of the right. This approach was adopted by legal scholar White, who viewed legal literacy as “the level of competence in legal discourse required for meaningful and active living in our increasingly legalistic and contentious culture.” [1] The Canadian Bar Association (1992, 23) defines legal competence as “the ability to understand words used in a legal context, to draw conclusions from them, and then to use those conclusions to act.” [1] [11] Employee Legal Awareness Day will take place on February 13 and will focus on your rights as an employee.

An Australian lawyer named Paul Brennan created this day to raise awareness of legal issues among employees and small businesses and reduce the risk they entail through legal education. The day encourages all employees to know their employee rights as well as company policies in your employer`s manual. Unlike training law students seeking a law degree (often referred to simply as “legal education”) and professional development of lawyers and judges (sometimes referred to as “legal education”), public legal education is primarily aimed at people who are not lawyers, judges, or law students. In a note to the 67th session of the UN General Assembly, the UN Secretary-General said: “The deprivations faced by people living in poverty throughout their lives – lack of access to quality education, limited access to information, limited political voice and social capital – lead to a lower level of legal knowledge and a lower awareness of their rights, thus creating social barriers to the search for reparations.” [29] In addition to external legal counsel, in-house counsel[39] and in some countries such as Australia and India, the Secretary General is responsible for advising on good governance practices and compliance with corporate governance standards, as required by various corporate, securities and other laws, regulations and policies. [40] [41] There have been many cases where governments have promoted long-term legal education missions or awareness-raising campaigns. An example of this is when institutions organize events to promote legal education. Bar associations, bar associations and various NGOs take the initiative to promote legal awareness and competence. In India, under the Legal Services Authorities Act 1987, the National Legal Services Authority (NLSA) has been mandated to take appropriate measures to disseminate legal skills and public awareness.
