"The Contract says, 'as is' I out of luck?"
"How can I get my husband to pay child support?"
"Do I need a lease?" 

These are some of the legal questions that are answered at every session of the "People's Law School" at the University of Houston Law Center.

About 500 people attend this free program designed to help make the law "user friendly" to the layperson. Among the subjects covered will be: basic insurance law, employment law, finding the law, health insurance law, consumer law, bankruptcy, wills, family law, business law, landlord/tenant law, credit, debt collection, how to work with attorneys, and how to file claims in small claims court. Local judges, attorneys, and professors teach all of the classes.

This semiAnnual event was originated by Richard M. Alderman, Dwight Olds Chair in Law at the University of Houston Law Center, who is known to many as "The People's Lawyer." "The People's Law School" is conducted with the help of volunteers from the community and from the Law Center faculty and staff.
