Carson City, NV – Democracy and freedom depend on the legal system, and the ability of everyday citizens to access that system. To that end, Nevadans are getting some free nuts-and-bolts advice this fall at the "People's Law School." Attorney Ann Price McCarthy says it's a chance to find out everything from your rights in a job injury claim, to what happens in a custody battle.

"The issues of child support and child support enforcement are complicated, and even though we are the divorce capital of the world -- and proud of it, thank you very much -- it ain't all that easy."

Carson City High School teacher Mike Longero is sending 14 of his Government Studies students to the People's Law School. For some, it's a glimpse into a possible career.

"I see it as informative first, and then they may find an area they want to specialize in and they'll pursue it down the road; just one more choice, one more opportunity."

One big job performed each year at the People's Law School, according to attorney Jerry Welt, is poking holes in legal myths. For example, he says what happens in a TV courtroom can be quite different from real life.

"There's really a lot of misinformation about what happens when you're charged with a crime, or sued, and exactly how the system works. The People's Law School is really meant to give people an outline so that they know where to go."

The People's Law School is free and open to all Nevadans ages 16 and older. The fall session will take place in Carson City.
