"Although I lived in England I could not attend the sessions as I was in my final year of university. I was so thrilled to follow the online method. It allowed me to catch up in my own time and at my own pace."

"Studying from the states I was worried the content would not be relevant, but I was wrong. It was incredibly informative and key. I have been able to apply the theory learned into practice."

"As a legal professional I thought I knew everything regarding IP & Contracts but I was wrong this course has really enabled me to grow within my field and additionally educate others."

"I went to law school and I can't believe I didn't learn anything that we were taught on the course it was brilliant. I will be doing the course again next year as a refresher".

"As a fashion designer I thought I could get away with protecting my brand legally but after facing a few challenges, I decided to take the course and it has not only helped me but it has transformed my brand completely"


Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?

Yes most certainly, however, you will need to give us at least 1-week notice providing the necessary information.

Refund Policy

There is a no refund policy
