The People’s Law School at the University of Houston Law Center will be back in session from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature more than 40 volunteer lawyers, judges, and law professors teaching courses in 14 areas of law.

Classes will include business law, tax, employment, health insurance, consumer law, credit and debt collection, wills and estates, family law, insurance law, landlord-tenant law, justice court, Social Security, and how to deal with an attorney.

“As the more than 50,000 people who have attended the People’s Law School have discovered, when it comes to the law, knowledge really is power,” Professor Emeritus Richard M. Alderman, director of the school’s Center for Consumer Law, said in a statement. “The People’s Law School won’t make you an attorney, but it will help you settle disputes and avoid problems.”

The event is presented by the Center for Consumer Law and sponsored by the Houston Bar Association. Registration is limited to the first 1,000 people.
