Terms & Conditions - Seminars, Workshops & Webinars


These terms & conditions apply to each order that Presidian Legal Publications ("Presidian") accepts from a customer ("You") for a seminar, workshop and/or webinar ("Course").




Payment must be received prior to attendance. Credit card payments attract a 2.6% surcharge.


Bookings & cancellations


Course participant numbers are strictly limited to ensure appropriate class sizes. Cancellations 14 days or more prior to the Course will attract a 5% cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 14 days prior to the Course are non-refundable. We reserve the right to cancel a Course (eg due to insufficient registrations) in which case all registration fees will be refunded.  




If food is to be provided at the Course, You agree to notify us at the time of registration as to any special dietary requirements You have so that we may notify the owner and/or operator of the venue at which the Course is held (“Venue Operator”) accordingly.  You must not take or consume any of the food provided off or outside the venue's premises.  


Not legal advice



Presidian is a provider of legal information – it does not engage in providing legal advice. Any training materials (“Materials”) provided, and/or statements made by the Course facilitator (including any responses made to specific questions posed by participants) ("Statements"), during the Course are not intended to be, nor do they constitute, legal or other professional advice. They are intended solely to provide generalised legal information. Various laws, provisions and issues will generally be omitted from Materials to ensure Courses can be delivered within suitable time-frames. Where any Statements are made in response to specific questions posed by participants, this is strictly on the basis that they are not legal advice but rather general legal information (as the facilitator has not had an opportunity to gather relevant factual information or give detailed consideration in the context of specific circumstances). If You require assistance or advice on specific issues, You should seek legal or other professional advice, as appropriate, before acting or relying on any of the contents of Materials or Statements. 



Without limitation on sub-clause (2), in the event that any Statements are deemed to be legal or other professional advice, You hereby agree and acknowledge that such advice is provided directly by the Course facilitator solely in his or her capacity as a lawyer or other professional advisor and as part of his or her practice of the law or other profession, as the case may be, under his or her relevant business trading name and is not provided by Presidian and is in no way connected with or delivered as a consequence of Presidian’s activities including where the Course facilitator undertakes work for, or is otherwise associated with, Presidian in another capacity such as author, contractor, officer, employee and/or agent.



In relation to this clause 4, Presidian contracts in its own capacity and as agent for the Course facilitator.


Limitation of liability and indemnity



To the extent permitted by law Presidian and/or each other person involved in the preparation, production, delivery and/or presentation of the Course, Materials and/or associated catering ("Third Party"), including without limitation the Venue Operator, will be under no liability whatsoever to You in respect of any loss or damage (including without limitation personal injury and/or consequential loss or damage), which You may suffer or incur (directly or indirectly) in connection with or as a result of the Course and/or this agreement ("Agreement") whether arising from any act or omission negligent or otherwise by Presidian and/or the Third Party.



Without limiting sub-clause (1), if Presidian and/or a Third Party is/are rendered liable to You in any way in relation to, or arising from, the Course or this Agreement, such liability will, at the option of Presidian or the Third Party, as appropriate, and to the extent permitted by law, be limited to a refund of the registration fee.



If a claim is brought by any person against Presidian and/or a Third Party for loss or damage (“Loss or Damage”) (including without limitation personal injury and/or consequential loss or damage) which is caused or contributed to by You, You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Presidian and/or the Third Party from any loss, liability, costs and/or damages arising from such claim to the extent the Loss or Damage was caused or contributed to by You.



In relation to this clause 5, Presidian contracts in its own capacity and as agent for the Third Parties.


No warranties



Subject to sub-clause (2):




the Course and Materials are provided without warranties of any kind, either express or implied; and




any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied in the Agreement is hereby excluded.



Where legislation or other law implies any condition or warranty in relation to this Agreement, and that law avoids or prohibits provisions in a contract excluding or modifying the application of or exercise of or liability under such condition or warranty, the condition or warranty is included or implied in the Agreement.  Presidian’s liability under any such condition or warranty will, at the option of Presidian and to the extent permitted by law, be limited to the price of the Course.


Program & venue variation


Presidian may change the venue of the Course for any reason (eg. higher than anticipated attendance numbers). Presidian may vary the Course program to deal with any unforeseen circumstances, provided the content of the Course is not substantially altered. 




Every provision of this document is independent of the other and any provision, or part of a provision, which is prohibited or unenforceable will be ineffective to the extent only of such prohibition or unenforceability and the other part or parts of the provision (if any) and all other provisions of this Agreement will remain in force.


Governing Law


The laws of South Australia in Australia govern this Agreement and the parties expressly submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts and tribunals of that State.


Other agreements


This agreement ("Agreement") supersedes all previous oral and written agreements or arrangements, if any, in respect of its subject matter (including in relation to the provision of all goods and/or services pursuant to the Agreement) ("Subject Matter") and embodies the entire agreement between the parties. If, at the time of or after entering into this Agreement, the parties enter into any other oral and/or written agreement or arrangement in respect of the Subject Matter ("Subsequent Agreement"), in the event of any discrepancy or inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and the Subsequent Agreement, the terms of the Agreement will prevail over the terms of the Subsequent Agreement.
