PrintThe University of Houston Law Center will reconvene its free “People’s Law School,” on Saturday with courses in 13 different areas of law.

The program will run from 9 a.m. to noon in Max Krost Hall and include more than 30 volunteer lawyers, judges, and law professors teaching the courses.

According to a news release, there will be classes in business law, health insurance, consumer law, credit and debt collection, wills and estates, family law, landlord-tenant law, small claims court, tax law, social security, and how to deal with an attorney.

Each attendee may choose three classes to attend. Attendees may take a class more than once as each class has a different instructor who may cover a topic a little differently.

The event is hosted by the Center for Consumer Law at the University of Houston Law Center and sponsored by the Houston Bar Association. Organizers claim it is the oldest and most successful law program for the layperson in the country. It is designed to provide people useful information about their legal rights.

While the People’s Law School is free, registration is required and is limited to the first 1,000 people. To register go to
