Free and open to the public, the People's Law School (“PLS”) offers a half-day curriculum featuring volunteer attorneys and legal experts who teach courses designed to educate members of the community about their legal rights and to make the law “user friendly.” Established and organized in 2005 by Professor Pat Wilson, the People's Law School has become an annual event sponsored by Baylor Law and other organizations for the benefit of the Central Texas community.

Participants choose up to three courses from nearly two-dozen, hour-long courses offered. The courses focused on useful issues such as consumer rights, elder law, employment law, estate planning, family law, how to get into law school, landlord/tenant rights, laws affecting small businesses, and privacy law. Each year, topics related to current issues are also offered, including previous courses on concealed carry, the castle doctrine, impeachment, immigration law, and many more.
