The webcast will be available for 30 days for all webcast registrants and then permanently archived online at LAO LAW for panel members, clinic staff and LAO employees.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Transit

Public transit is the way to go! The Osgoode Professional Development Centre can easily be accessed from the Dundas TTC station located on line 1. 1 Dundas Street West is located on the South-West side of Yonge and Dundas, between the H&M building and Joey Eaton Centre restaurant.

Bike

If you're arriving by bike, ample post and ring parking is available along Dundas Street and Yonge.

Uber / Taxi / Rideshare

Ask your driver to provide drop-off service immediately in front of the building.

Driving

If driving to the conference, we recommend either the Atrium on Bay parking lot on Edward Street, just east of Bay Street or the Green P lot at 20 Dundas Square.


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Yes. Once registered, you can transfer your registration between the in-person and the webinar session as long as there is available space in your preferred session. If you transfer to an already full session, you may be placed on a waitlist and lose your spot entirely. Transfers can not be made from one individual to another.

What is the refund policy?

Please contact us as soon as possible. We are unable to complete refund requests submitted within one week of the conference.
