LAS' People Law School adds Child Support Education

Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands released its fall People’s Law School class schedule today.

The People’s Law School is a free program that provides an overview of common civil legal issues that a person might face. Taught by Legal Aid Society attorneys and volunteer attorneys, the weekly, one-hour classes will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. on Mondays at Wright Middle School, 180 McCall Street and on Thursdays at Cohn Learning Center, 4805 Park Avenue.

Offered September through November in partnership with the Nashville Community Education Commission, the classes will focus on a different legal topic each week.

“We’re particularly excited to be adding a new class to the schedule this fall which focuses on child support issues,” said Adinah Robertson, community education coordinator for Legal Aid Society. “Child support can be a very complicated legal process. By having a skilled attorney outline the basics and answer questions, we believe the class will help a great number of parents and children in our community.”

Anyone can register for one or several classes at either location. To register, call the Nashville Community Education Commission at (615) 298-8050. Or go to the website,
