LEEWS Live One-Day Program (NOTE. Information below has been retained for perspective purposes. However, it is no longer applicable or relevant.)
Program Cost, Registration (NOTE. This information retained. However, it is no longer applicable or relevant.)
COST: $135 (includes book), if payment made by Wednesday prior to date of program [actually prior to 9 a.m. EST start of business on Thursday]. $150 afterwards and at door.*
As noted, the cost of the live, one-day (7 hour) program, including the Primer, is $135, if you register by or on the Wednesday prior to the program. The cost thereafter, and at the door, providing space is available, is $150. You can register online with a credit card (VISA, MC, AMEX, DISC.), through the mail (form below) with check, money order, or credit card, or over the phone with a credit card (1-800-765-8246). All forms of payment, including cash, are accepted at the door. Note that you can join a group (see requirements below) at any time PRIOR to 7:30 a.m. the day of the program and receive the group rate. No one may join a group after 7:30 a.m.
* $40.00 of any registration payment is non-refundable, unless you advise of inability to attend by the Thursday prior to program. Then a $25.00 processing/cancellation fee will be assessed.
GROUP RATES (include book): $120.00 — 3-6; $115.00 — 7-12; $110 — 13 or more, or free course to organizer of group (and $115/per). No deadline, but groups must form prior to program. (See below.)
As noted above, if you register as part of a group of 3-6 persons, the individual cost is $120; 7-12 = $115 per; and 13 or more = $110 per. There is no deadline for obtaining the group rate. However, the group must form in advance of the program. This means
- the group must have a name (e.g., "Smith" group; "Lawmasters"; "Harvard '13 Section 1"; etc.);
- your name must be associated with the group name; and
- we must be advised in advance of the group and the names of its members,
if only by telephone by 7:30 a.m. the morning of the program. (Leave a message
Payment may be made in advance or at the door, individually, or as part of a group. But we must have the name of groups and group members on our class list. Individuals may be added to a group at any time prior to 7:30 a.m. the day of the program. Should additions to or deletions from a group trigger a different rate, appropriate adjustments to each individual cost may be made, at the discretion of the presenter and LEEWS, if necessary on the day of the program. (E.g., a $5 deduction in a large group rate triggered by a day of payment or addition will normally not be awarded.)
How to form a group — If you know of friends or others planning to attend LEEWS, simply say, "Let's go as a group." Give the group a name (your last name, for example — i.e., "Smith group"), and give the group name and its anticipated size when registering. An easy way to form a group, especially a large group, is to make an announcement like the following in class, then post a signup sheet:
"The LEEWS exam writing program is coming on (date). It will be at the (hotel location). If you are interested, we should go as a group and get the group discount. A signup sheet will be posted (location). Or see me. The group will be called [make up a name]. Call or mail in your registration. Give the group name when doing so."
Another easy option is to post such an announcement by e-mail. So long as a person calling gives the group name, we will collect the registrants into a group and charge the applicable rate, making adjustments if necessary as the group grows. The organizing person(s) may call periodically to find out how large the group is.
NOTE: We at LEEWS will tell you whether a group exists, its approximate size, the year of its members, and whether it is evening or day division. However, WE WILL NOT TELL YOU THE NAME OF THE GROUP OR THE NAME OF A GROUP MEMBER. The quid pro quo for getting the group rate is the hope that you will talk to others about the possibility of attending LEEWS. Therefore, it is your responsibility to form a group or seek out an existing group.
Will I automatically be grouped with others from my school? — "No." Students are grouped by school on class lists, but no group can form under the school name alone — e.g., "Harvard group." Too much confusion would ensue. (E.g., "Hey, I'm from Harvard, too. Why can't I be in the group?") You MAY form a group under your school name and class year — e.g., "Harvard '13." School and class or school and section (e.g., "Harvard '13, Section A") is an excellent way to encourage participation. Even better is school mascot names — e.g., "Blue Devils," "Blue Devils '13," "Fighting Irish," etc. However, students wishing to join such a group must give the exact name — e.g., "Harvard eleven " or "Harvard class of eleven" — when registering (or provide the name of someone else in the group).
Because space in fall programs is sometimes limited, groups should try to form and advise us of their existence by the Wednesday prior to the program.
Should a group equal or exceed 20 in number, a free course will automatically be extended to the organizer of that group, providing such individual is apparent (i.e., that person is known to us — because we have talked to him/her — as having started or organized the group). The organizer of a group of 12+ may also claim a free course, providing all members of the group pay the 7-12 rate ($115). If you plan to organize a group of over 12, but less than 20 for the purpose of claiming a free course, it should be made clear to those joining that they will pay $115, not $110. Most won't mind, as they will still get a substantial discount.
If a registrant cancels by the Thursday prior to a live program, the full amount paid minus a $25 fee is refundable. After that the full amount minus a $40 fee will be refunded.
Cancellation (or no-show) by registrant
In the event a registrant does not appear at the program, what the registrant paid, minus a $40 no-show fee, will be refunded. However, the registrant must contact LEEWS! At which time he or she will be offered the option of a) applying the full amount toward purchase of the audio program; b) transferring to another program for a $25 fee; c) obtaining the Primer (book) only, in which event $50 will be deducted from the amount paid.
Cancellation by LEEWS
LEEWS has conducted well over 1,000 live programs(!!). Very rarely are programs cancelled. However, LEEWS reserves the discretion to cancel a program owing to illness, insufficient response, etc. If a decision to cancel is made, this will be posted at the website (Live Program Schedule) by the Thursday evening prior. Registrants as of that time will each be contacted, and will be offered the option of a) a full refund; b) the audio program in lieu of the live program at no additional cost; c) transfer to a different program with a $25 credit.

Confirmation of registration —
To avoid unnecessary communication, the immediate online confirmation you will receive of receipt of e-mailed registration information will be your only confirmation of registration. Secure online registration will receive an additional e-mail confirmation once authorization is approved. You will receive no further communication or confirmation unless a) information is incomplete, b) a problem processing payment has been encountered, or c) there is a problem or change of information regarding the program for which you have registered. Then you will be contacted by either e-mail or telephone. Otherwise, you may assume that you are duly registered . Merely show up at the indicated program to check in (between 8:15 and the 8:45 a.m. start).
Within one to two working days of receipt of your online registration and payment, your name will be entered on the class list for the live program indicated.
(NOTE: After Thursday and just prior to a live program, YOU MUST REGISTER AT THE DOOR, NOT HERE. Come by 8:15-8:30. If you are part of a group, leave your name, school, the name of the group, or the name of someone in the group at the 800 number [800.765.8246].)
