NIC offers classes through ‘The People's Law School'

North Idaho College's Workforce Training Center is offering a series of noncredit community education classes this fall called “The People's Law School,” an introduction to the law designed to give participants a basic understanding of legal rights and how to effectively resolve legal issues when they arise.

The classes will be broadcast simultaneously through interactive video conferencing technology throughout the five northern counties of Idaho. North Idaho residents can take the classes at Boundary Junior High School in Bonners Ferry, the NIC Workforce Training Center in Post Falls, the NIC Sandpoint Center in Sandpoint, the NIC Silver Valley Center in Kellogg or St. Maries High School in St. Maries.

The People's Law School I is already in progress and will end with its final session Oct. 6. Based on questions and concerns raised in the first session, the second and third parts of the series will focus even more on practical topics and common issues that affect the general public.

The People's Law School II will be offered from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays Oct. 13, 20 and 27. Participants must register by Thursday, Oct. 6. This class will focus on torts, real estate and business law.

The People's Law School III will be offered from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays Nov. 3, 10 and 17. Participants must register by Oct. 27. This class will focus on consumer, family and elder law.

The enrollment fee is $15 per class, which includes all three sessions.

The classes will be led by local attorneys and Senior Judge James R. Michaud, chair of the First Judicial District's Bar Association, which is cosponsoring the classes. The lawyers and judges volunteering their time for the presentations include Clark Peterson, Jennifer Brumley-Moore, Dennis Reuter, Hugh Nisbet, Heidi Fisher, Stanley Moore, Howard Funke, Steve Mcrea, Ken Howard, Michael Ramsden, Doug Marfice, Peter Smith, Matthew Grupp, Steve Smith, Alan Wasserman, Louis Garbrecht, David “Rob” Robinson, Judge Penny Friedlander, Wes Somerton, Anne Solomon, Michael Wytychak, Mary Cusack and Judge Scott Wayman.
