People in the area have the chance to learn about the way the law works, through the third annual People's Law School.
It'll be held the next six Thursday nights in the Randolph County Courthouse.
Judges, local lawyers, probation officers, and magistrates will be leading the classes.
They'll cover topics like drug courts and criminal law, and family law.
A mock trial will also be held, so people can see what real court proceedings are like.
"There are many people who have never been in the courtroom, and this is the people's courtroom at the courthouse. It's a beautiful place. This is an opportunity for them to come and learn about issues that concern them. We all have legal issues, we all have legal concerns. This is an opportunity for them to educate themselves, and to be a little bit more aware," said Circuit Court Judge, Jaymie Godwin Wilfong.
The classes are free to anyone in the area. To sign up, call the judge's office at (304)-636-3815 or click here for a registration form
