Getting to Know “The Law” – Classes Underway in WYO

May 12, 2010

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Lesson number one: meet the judge. The "People's Law School" got underway Tuesday night in Cheyenne and will continue through the end of the month, to teach folks about how laws are made, how laws work, and which court is for which purpose. It also includes opportunities to meet judges, attorneys and legal experts in an informal setting. Lori Brand, "dean" of the "law school" sessions, says education is the goal.

"The different details of the structure, the way that it's set up, we'll demystify it. You have to be able to feel like you can access those laws, they are for you, as well. It's not just for lawyers."

Brand says they will also explain the types of legal resources available for anyone to use.

"Where you can find things about the legislature, or even about the law library. Do most people realize that the law library in the Supreme Court Building is open to the public?"

There's no cost to attend the "People's Law School" sessions, but registration is required. (Register online at trumpf@lclsonline.org.) Co-sponsored by the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association, the six sessions are held at the Laramie County Library, Cheyenne.
