Pension law and regulation is complex, technical and, to the unwary, a minefield of potential liability. The list of “need-to-know” topics seems endless, and those who advise on pension matters need to be aware of additional potential issues, such as employment law and human rights considerations.
As a lawyer, pensions professional, CFO, HR manager, consultant, or executive sitting on a pension committee, you may be called upon to give advice on or make decisions regarding pension-related issues. It is critical for you to have an understanding of the key issues and their implications.
Now in its seventh year, the OsgoodePD Certificate in Pension Law was developed to provide a comprehensive overview and analysis of the major areas of pension law and practice. This unique program, taught by leading experts in the pension field, will equip you with the knowledge and the practical strategies you need in your day-to-day work.
Fees include attendance, program materials, continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments for each of the 5 days of the program. The price does not include accommodations. Please inquire about group discounts and financial assistance. Fees paid by individuals are eligible for a tuition tax credit. Dress is business casual.
We will make every effort to present the certificate program as advertised, but it may be necessary to change the dates, location, speakers or content with little or no notice. In the event of program cancellation, York University and Osgoode Hall Law School’s liability is limited to reimbursement of paid fees.
You will receive a certificate upon completion of The Osgoode Certificate in Pension Law. Participants must attend all program modules and successfully complete the take-home assignment to receive a certificate.
Substitution of registrants is permitted at any time. If you are unable to find a substitute, a full refund is available if a cancellation request is received in writing 21 days prior to the program date. If a cancellation request is made with less than 21 days notice, a $150 administration fee will apply. No other refund is available.
In the event you experience technical difficulties, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

“I am in-house counsel and I have been asked to advise the pension committee with very little background in pension law. This program has provided a great foundation for future learning and development. I would highly recommend it to others involved in pension administration.”
