The final chapter draws thoughts together, particularly in the turbulent times of its writing. As well as the author's personal viewpoint a number of experts in the field are asked to summarise their views on the significance of public legal education (PLE). The contributors come from Australia, the Czech Republic, Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States and reach interesting conclusions with many common themes and conclusions resulting. They collectively represent a cross-section of stakeholders ranging from those who have experienced PLE as members of the public to those who have been responsible as initiators, academics, teachers, students, practising lawyers and activists. Their many and valued comments provide unconditional support for the case that knowing ones rights and responsibilities is more than a good idea – it is a fundamental human right.
