Justice Literacy Workshop – Instructor's Handbook (2006)

This handbook is part of a workshop designed to help justice and social services practitioners become more aware of the challenges that people with limited literacy skills face when they come into contact with the criminal justice system.

As well, the workshop offers practitioners a chance to develop their skills in administering and interpreting the Justice Literacy Indicator (JLI) test, which determines a person’s ability to read and understand the legal documents used in the charging, trial, and sentencing stages of the criminal justice system.

The authors have included data on literacy levels among Canadians in general and among inmates in federal prisons specifically. They also discuss both the personal and social effects of limited literacy.
