Getting a divorce? Grappling with debt? Concerned about identity theft?

On Saturday, the 21st annual People’s Law School will provide free education about common legal topics at St. Mary’s University.

This joint project of the San Antonio Bar Foundation and the St. Mary’s University School of Law will be held at the law school’s Law Classrooms Building. The doors for the event open at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. Classes begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m.

Local attorneys will share their experiences during 45-minute classes on topics that fall into three tracks – family, elder and business law.

Session topics include: immigration law; Social Security and Supplemental Security Income; tax topics for the self-employed; wills, living wills and powers of attorney; consumer law; family law and protective orders; and bankruptcy law and foreclosures.

After each session, attendees can ask questions and speak with the presenters.

Attorney Dominic J. Negrón (J.D. ’13), who will be teaching a session called “Guardianship: What to do when your loved one cannot make decisions,” described the event as “a wonderful opportunity for the members of our community to come out and receive crucial information and guidance from local attorneys.”

“We look forward to seeing everybody there, and to serving our community through the provision of helpful and much-needed information,” Negrón said.
