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.
In order to successfully complete the program and obtain an Osgoode Certificate in Handling Summary Conviction Offence Cases, participants must attend all program modules and satisfactorily pass an online multiple-choice exam.
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.
