For the 10th consecutive year, the UA College of Law, Arizona Trial Lawyer Association, Pima County Bar Association, Territorial Newspapers and Insty-Prints is sponsoring the People's Law School starting Monday.
The series of six seminars, to be held every Monday night until Nov. 18, starts at 7 p.m. in College of Law Room 146.
Each Monday there will be a different legal topic on the agenda.
James Fein, of the Tucson law firm Fein and Hamerhoff P.C., said the series of legal discussions is being held at the College of Law because the organizers "felt it was appropriate since it gives a background of law and creates an atmosphere of learning with a legal background."
Week-by-week topics include:
- Monday, Basics of the state judicial system with speakers such as Michael J. Brown, presiding judge of the Pima County Superior Court, and Michael L. Piccorreta, Arizona State Bar president.
- Oct. 21, a debate among the candidates for Pima County Attorney.
- Oct. 28, a lecture on the topic of juvenile law and issues with Proposition 102, which is on the November ballot.
- Nov. 4, a discussion on wills, estates, guardianships and elder law.
- Nov. 11, a discussion on trying a murder case in Arizona. It will include presentations from attorneys from both the defense and the prosecution.
- Nov. 18, the final discussion will concentrate on the topic of negligence law.
The People's Law School is a national program that came to Arizona 10 years ago. Participants can register at anytime through the final session and are able to register for any number of sessions.
The registration fee is $30 for the public and $20 for students.
