The People’s Law School Background

We all have questions concerning the law, answers to which are sometimes difficult to obtain.  And if we do get an answer, sometimes we still don’t understand! Why, for example, does a wife have to sign a deed to land that only belongs to the husband and vice-versa? Why does a tenant have to give 30 days notice in some instances and not in others? If your twelve-year-old join a record club, are you stuck for it? But why do you have to pay for the window he broke?  Often the answers can be found from an attorney, and not all citizens have easy access to those professionals. 

 

It was because of the desire to offer understanding about the law and how it affects us that the People’s Law School was instituted by the Information and Service Committee of the State Bar Association of North Dakota. The People’s Law School will provide information – and explanations – on a variety of topics.
