People's Law School

Clearwater Bar Association has presented People’s Law School annually for 26 years. The program runs from mid January through late April, every Thursday from 7-9 pm. Each week a different topic is covered by volunteer judges and attorneys. The program is designed to help increase knowledge of legal concepts that may affect our everyday lives.

People’s Law School is free to the public and no registration is required. Just show up! People of all ages and all professions are welcome, from high schoolers to seniors.

Special thanks to St. Petersburg College for their partnership in this program.
