Sept. 6, 2012 - The People’s Law School, which over the years has drawn more than 50,000 people wanting to learn more about the law, will be back in session on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the University of Houston Law Center.
The free program focuses on sharing information with members of the public about their legal rights and the role these rights play in their daily lives. Lead by Associate Dean Richard M. Alderman, known as “The People's Lawyer," and sponsored by the Center for Consumer Law, the popular program covers subjects such as family law, wills, and how to start a business as well as answering questions about landlord/tenant issues, lemon laws, rights under debt collection laws, and many other areas. The classes are taught by volunteer judges, lawyers, and UHLC professors.
Although the People's Law School is free, you must register to attend. Registration opens Tuesday, Sept. 17. Visit http://www.law.uh.edu/peopleslaw/ for more information.
