April 9, 2012 -- More than 400 people with questions about a wide range of legal issues enrolled in the People’s LawSchool when it convened Saturday morning at the University of Houston Law Center. Volunteer judges, lawyers, and UHLC professors led classes about legal rights and the role they play in everyday lives.

The popular program is hosted by Associate Dean Richard M. Alderman and sponsored by the Center for Consumer Law with the help of about 20 student volunteers. “It was a great crowd for a holiday weekend,” Alderman said, with many questions about health care, debt collection, and wills. As usual, subjects of interest ran the gamut from family law and how to start a business to questions about landlord/tenant issues and lemon laws.

The People’s Law School has drawn well over 50,000 people since its inception in the early 1980s. The fall session is planned for Oct. 13. Click here for more information.
