Cancellation Policy

Public Seminar Cancellation Policy - Engineering THE LAW, Inc. reserves the right to cancel any public seminar, at any time, and for any reason. Normally, this happens only when too few are registered for a seminar. It is recommended that customers check the Seminar Schedule prior to making any travel arrangements to ensure the class is taking place, as scheduled. Consequently, Engineering THE LAW, Inc. assumes no responsibility or liability for any transportation, travel, or penalty costs incurred by customers in making their travel arrangements.

Public Seminar Refund Policy - If we cancel the legislative seminar, then you will receive full refund of your payment. If you cancel your registration 14 or more days before the seminar date, a $15/registration cancellation fee will be subtracted from your refund. (amended 1/31/07, 10/26/15)

If we cancel the regulatory agency seminar, then you will receive full refund. If you cancel 14 days ahead of time a cancellation fee of $6 will be subtracted from your refund. (amended 1/31/07)

When you cancel between 13 days and 72 hours before the seminar date for which you registered, we will issue a credit to you to attend a future seminar(s). The amount of the credit will be the seminar fee that you paid less a cancellation charge. The cancellation charges are as follows: 1) $50 for Day 1: How to Successfully Lobby State Legislatures; 2) $25 for Day 2: How to Successfully Lobby State Regulatory Agencies; or $75 for both seminars.

Your credit will be in effect for one year. That means that you will have one year to attend a future seminar. If you do not attend within the year period, your registration fee will be forfeited. (added 12/16/04, revised 10/26/15)

Engineering THE LAW, Inc. incurs significant expenses in credit card processing fees both initial and refunds, time and money in preparing seminar materials, notifying seminar participants with confirmation letters, renting seminar space and equipment, buying lunches, guaranteeing a number of attendees to the hotel, etc. Cancellation charges help to offset in part these expenses.

If you cancel less than 72 hours ahead of the seminar date or simply don't show up for the seminar for which you are registered, neither refund nor future seminar credit will be issued. (revised 10/26/15)

Your cancellation can be faxed, emailed, or mailed.

Public Seminar Class Confirmation - Your registration is confirmed only when you have received a written confirmation and payment has been received by Engineering THE LAW, Inc. An invoice does not confirm your registration.
