Frequently Asked Questions
What if I am not a lawyer?
You do not need to be a lawyer to attend the Women in Trial Travel Summit group trips. Though most of the attendees will be women lawyers, there is no requirement that you practice law to attend.
What if I Don't need mcle credits?
If you aren't a lawyer or simply don't need the MCLE credits, then you are not required to participate in any of the CLE programs. While you are certainly welcome to join, there is no requirement that you sit in on the CLE programs either.
What is the Cancellation Policy?
The cancellation policy is as follows:
A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to save you a spot on the trip.
If you cancel 60+ days before the trip start date, 50% of your payment will be refunded.
If you cancel 30-59 days before the trip start date, 25% of your payment will be refunded.
If you cancel 29 days or less before the trip start date, you forfeit 100% of your payment.
If something comes up and you absolutely must cancel but don't want to forfeit your payment, please reach out to a WITTS team member to see if there is something we can do. We may be willing to allow a full refund if a replacement is found in a timely fashion. As always, we want to work with you and understand that life does happen, so please just email us if you encounter a problem. If you cancel more than 30 days out and there is a waitlist and we are able to fill your spot, you will get a full refund.
Depending on the policy and conditions, travel insurance will pay also for some or all cancellation fees. That is another reason why we require all attendees to purchase travel insurance. Most travel insurance must be purchased travel within 21 days or less of booking your reservation.
If the trip itself is cancelled or rescheduled by WITTS organizers, all monies paid will be fully refunded.
