Free Family, Wills and Consumer Protection Law Classes Next Week

The People’s Law School provides public legal education to all residents in British Columbia and whenever possible, they also provide public legal education to people in British Columbia’s immigrant communities in their own languages. The People’s Law School is an independent, non-profit, non-political society whose purpose is to provide British Columbians – especially those with particular legal needs – with reliable and impartial information about the law. They accomplish this by means of speakers, training workshops, publications, theatre, and special events.
