Community Legal Intermediary Training Course

The Community Legal Intermediary Training Course (CLI) is a program that targets individuals who are often called upon to help others in the community with legal problems, whether in the role of a worker, friend or community leader.  The program aims to provide participants with basic knowledge about our laws and legal system, and to inform them of the proper role of a legal intermediary.

The CLI program is sponsored by Community Legal Education Association (CLEA), a not-for-profit community agency that provides Manitobans with a variety of public legal education services. The program is presented with the help of many talented and dedicated lawyers and volunteers.

Classes for the CLI program run twice a year in September and January. The CLI course is held each Wednesday from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at our office, Suite 205 – 414 Graham Avenue, Winnipeg. The total length of the course is 10 weeks. The cost of registration is $100.00. (Registration fees are subject to change)

Register early, as space is limited to 10 participants. CLEA may limit the number of registrations from any agency or organization due to space restrictions.  To register for the CLI or for the start date of the next course please contact Kerri Brass, CLEA’s Program Coordinator, at 943-2382 ext. 2, or by email:
