On Nov. 4, 2019, DeKalb Magistrate Court graduated the second group from their annual People’s Law School, some three different classes graduating from this free, four-week program.
Last year, 47 students graduated from the People’s Law School. Each person who goes through the program learns about the court system in Georgia, which covers civil, criminal, ordinance and mental health matters, and paying special attention to the DeKalb Magistrate Court.
According to a recent press release, this year’s graduating group was made up of DeKalb County residents from “24 different zip codes,” whether that be Guyana, Canada, or Atlanta.
“I was delighted by the interest shown again this year in our People’s Law School,” Chief Magistrate Judge Berryl Anderson said in a recent press release. “The participants were brimming with enthusiasm during every class, and kept us on our toes with their insightful questions. Our court is grateful to the residents of DeKalb for their continued strong support of this program. I’m looking forward to the Class of 2020.”
Applications for the third annual People’s Law School will open in summer 2020.
