A TLC student must be a member of their State Bar in good standing. They must also be a plaintiff’s lawyer, public defender, or a criminal defense lawyer. Trial Lawyers College does not offer training to any attorney who is an employee of a corporation, an insurance firm, or of the federal government other than legal services or public defenders.
Given the high cost of providing courses at accessible venues nationwide and those venues’ strict cancellation policies, TLC can no longer grant tuition refunds. To lessen the impact of this change in policy on students, TLC offers the following options: 1) if a student needs to cancel, they can contact the Registrar with the name of a replacement student who is prepared to take their place, especially important to cover the cost of the committed lodging. 2) If no replacement is found for their reserved spot prior in the program, we will apply 50% of the paid tuition as a credit toward a future program and use the other 50% toward the un-used lodging expense.
Each course fee includes tuition and meals during the seminar. Lodging may or may not be included as a part of the tuition fee, as described on each unique course specific page. If lodging is not included, a link to the venue and a TLC room block will be sent to you after you register for the course.
