Courses

For tuition-based courses or events, either in-person or online, payment is due upon registration. You may easily pay via credit card through the online registration system. Once your payment has been processed, you will receive an enrollment confirmation email and will have access to course information through the University of Pretrial.

If you prefer to pay by check, simply choose the “pay by check” option during online registration. In this case, your space in the course or event will be reserved; however, you will not have access to course materials until tuition is paid in full. If payment has not been received 72 hours prior to the opening date of the course or event, your registration will be canceled so we may open up the spot for another participant.

No problem! Questions regarding invoices or requests for W-9 documents can be directed to invoices@pretrial.org.

Transfer: Your course or event registration is transferable, at no charge, up to 24 hours prior to the start of the course or event. You can transfer your registration to another person for the same course date, or you can transfer your registration to a future course date. (Please note: transfers to a future date are only allowed once per registration.)

To transfer your registration, send an email to up@pretrial.org and provide the following information:

  • Your name

  • The email address associated with your University of Pretrial account

If PJI reschedules a course or event due to circumstances beyond our control, participants’ registration will automatically be transferred to the new event date, and participants will be offered a window of time in which to request a refund. If PJI cancels a course or event, participants’ registration fees will be automatically refunded.

PJI reserves the right to cancel any course or event and refund participants’ tuition if minimum enrollment is not met. For online courses or events, cancellations will be made no less than 3 days in advance of the scheduled start date. For in-person courses or events, cancellations will be made no less than 7 days in advance of the scheduled start date. If an in-person event is rescheduled or canceled, participants are responsible for canceling their own lodging or travel arrangements, and for any expenses and fees incurred as a result of this cancellation.

PJI does not offer CEUs at this time; however, anyone who would like to request CEUs or CLEs may be able to do so through their state professional association or bar association. PJI can provide any requested documentation (e.g. faculty bios, course outline and hours, etc.) for this purpose.
