Tutorial Participation

Tutorial participation is essential to the individual and Program at the Tax Law Institute. Regular verbal participation in tutorials and classes is expected of all Applicants. An electronic log is maintained by the Teaching Faculty. Absences are duly noted and notices are sent to Applicants when absences occur. The Tax Law Institute may, after appropriate procedures, treat Applicants as having withdrawn from the tutorial if they do not login to the Virtual Conference Rooms for 5 consecutive days. Participants who believe they need to miss a class or classes should contact the Faculty. Applicants must know that non-compliance with the attendance policy can and will result in our inability to issue CPE credits, Certificate of Completion or Certificate of Attendance as well as approvals for Applicant testing and Bar Admission.

No fees of any kind shall be charged by the Tax Law Institute for making available to the said participant such opportunity.
