PLEIS-NB is celebrating 20th Anniversary Year

Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) is celebrating its 20th year of educating and informing the public about the law.  The service was created in 1989 as a joint pilot project of the Law Reform Branch of the New Brunswick Department of Justice and the New Brunswick Law Society. Funding and in-kind support is provided by Justice Canada, the New Brunswick Law Foundation and the New Brunswick Department of Justice. In 1990, PLEIS-NB incorporated as non-profit and in 1996 we became a charitable organization. PLEIS-NB offers a speaker’s bureau, a video lending library, workshops, training sessions and publication program.

From its humble beginnings, PLEIS-NB has now produced over 150 bilingual publications on a vast array of legal topics and has taken the lead on numerous special projects. PLEIS-NB staff works collaboratively with government, the legal community and community organizations to identify law information needs and develop services to meet those needs. We strive to create relevant and readable resources for the public on topical legal issues.  PLEIS-NB has emerged as a invaluable resource for explaining the law and legal processes to the public in plain language. In doing so, we have come to play an integral role in creating access to the justice system.

During our 20th anniversary year, we encourage you to send your reflections and memories relating to PLEIS-NB’s excellence in programming. You can email us at
