Booking a Course, Event or Talk Terms

Booking a Course or Event Terms

All bookings to attend Scots Law Talks events, talks, workshops or preparation courses are subject to these Terms and Conditions. Reference to event includes workshops, talks, courses or any other event/form of content delivery that Scots Law Talks delivers.

Declining a booking

We reserve the right to decline any booking request or any aspect of a booking request.

Attendance on the day

We reserve the right to turn attendees away or to ask attendees to leave if we have any concerns on health and safety grounds, conduct, concerns about payment or any other reason.

Age Restrictions

Some of our courses, talks and events have recommended age restrictions. For our courses, this is to ensure that learners are able to have a positive learning experience with peers of a similar age. For our talks, this is due to the mature themes surrounding crime, violence and law that will be discussed. By booking a place on our events, talks or courses, we ask that you adhere to the recommended age restrictions in place.

Payment and Penalties

If an attendee does not attend, is denied entry, asked to leave or does not complete the session for any reason then we shall not be due any refund or payment for any losses regardless of how they were incurred.

If an event is cancelled within 24 hours and was as a result of something that Scots Law Talks could reasonably have predicted or avoided, then full refunds/no charges will be made. We regret that we cannot be held responsible for any other costs or losses. Payment terms are that payment must be made prior to the course/event/talk commencement date.

If you book a place and then cancel with at least 14 working days’ notice, or if you book a place and we cancel the event (regardless of the reason), then you shall be entitled to a full refund/no charge.

If you give between 7 and 14 working days’ notice then you shall be entitled to a 50% refund/50% reduction on the invoice for that place(s).

Please note that after the 7 working days' notice period has passed, we cannot offer refunds. Unfortunately, this is due to the costs involved with running these events and because places are limited.

If you contact us within 7 working days before the event, we might be able to transfer your booking to an upcoming event/future talk instead, however this is not a guarantee and will depend on availability of tickets for these planned events.

Please note that tickets are non-transferable. This is because the ticket is directly linked to the person who made the booking.


If you notify us not less than 14 working days in advance via email or our website, we will accept appropriate substitutions for our events, talks, workshops or training sessions. However, this must be expressly approved by Scots Law Talks and a substitution request may have to be declined. Scots Law Talks may need to ask for the age of the attendee as some courses, events and talks have age restrictions.


Any place, admission or ticket can be cancelled at any time. A cancellation is only valid when we confirm it with you. Cancellations can be made by phone, e-mail, website or in person. Sessions/events are subject to cancellation if there are insufficient bookings. We will advise attendees, where practically possible, and endeavour to do so approximately 5 working days’ prior to start date of the session/event. If we make a substantive change to a session/event (for example, change of date or venue) then you may cancel your place(s) without penalty if the changes are unsuitable for you.

Health and Safety

If you suffer from any health condition that may impact on your ability to participate, or may result in you taking ill during the session/event then you must notify us, in advance. This can be through our contact forms on our website or by email. This is designed to ensure the safety of all of our attendees. Attendees agree to adhere to any health and safety arrangements at any venue or place where the session/event takes place.

Data Protection and Privacy

By completing and submitting a booking request, you authorise Scots Law Talks to store and process the information provided as per our Terms and Conditions and in line with our Privacy Policy. All data is stored in secure systems and can only be accessed by authorised persons. We will not sell or share any of the details to any other party.


Attendees give permission to be included in any photographs/videos being taken during the event, course and/or talk and for us to use them for publicity and other purposes, including on our website and other digital platforms. If you do not wish to be included in the photographs/videos, then please contact us in advance of the event on so that we can ensure that this is respected.

Travel, Directions and Parking

Location details concerning the venues are stated on the Event page and also on the E-Ticket. We also include venue information and a direct link to the venue's website on our 'Venues' tab on our website.

Updates to Terms and Conditions

We reserve the right to amend our policies (including Terms and Conditions, Booking a Course, Event or Talk Terms, Privacy Policy, etc.) from time to time. The Terms and Conditions applicable to any booking shall be those in force on the day that the booking was confirmed. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of Scotland.
