Everyone thinks they’re a lawyer, right?

Well, maybe not quite, but they can certainly learn more about the law at the 15th annual People’s Law School, presented by the Tarrant County Bar Foundation and Tarrant County Bar Association. The event, set for noon-4 p.m. Saturday, offers the public a free opportunity to learn about various areas of law through short seminars taught by local attorneys, judges and other professionals.

The event will be held at Texas A&M University School of Law, 1515 Commerce St.

The classes provide information about legal subjects and issues commonly encountered by the public. The People’s Law School will begin with a general session on the American Bar Association’s 2019 Law Day theme, “Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society.”

The event includes three periods for breakout session, and participants can choose from three topics offered during each period. Some of the topics include estate planning, gun rights, homeowners associations and code enforcement, and Tarrant Appraisal District protests.
