The Nevada Trial Lawyers Association (NTLA), through its public education arm, the Nevada Foundation for Consumer Education, has been presenting the People’s Law School, free of charge, since 1986.  In even-numbered years it takes place in southern Nevada and in odd-numbered years in northern Nevada.  Its purpose is to educate the citizens of Nevada regarding their constitutional, legal, and consumer rights.  The school consists of twelve classes held two at a time during a six-week period.  Extensive advertising in the presentation geographical area advises the general public of its date, time, and place.  Volunteer instructors consist of members of the Nevada Supreme Court, Nevada legislature, and Nevada Trial Lawyers Association—all covering the areas of law in which they practice.  The school is videotaped and the tapes made available to public television stations throughout Nevada.
