Cancellation and Refund Policy

The Paris Summer Institute follows the ABA Cancellation and Refund Policy.

Program Cancellation

  • If a program is subject to cancellation for insufficient enrollment or any other reason, the circumstances under which cancellation will occur must be disclosed in accordance with Section VIII.

  • For cancellation that occurs after a deposit has been paid, the program director must use his or her best efforts to make arrangements for each student enrolled to attend a similar program, if the student so desires.

  • If changes are made in the course offerings or other significant aspects of the program, those changes must be communicated promptly to any registrant who has paid a deposit or registered for the program, and an opportunity must be provided for that person to withdraw.

State Department Travel Information 

As part of the registration materials for the program, the school shall supply the U.S. State Department Country-Specific Information for the country(ies) in which the program will be conducted. If the Country-Specific Information for the country(ies) is revised prior to or during a program the updated information must be distributed promptly to students.

Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts

  • If, prior to the commencement of a program, a U.S. State Department Travel Warning or Alert covering program dates and destinations is issued for the country(ies) in which the program will be conducted, all registrants must be notified promptly and be given an opportunity to withdraw from the program.

  • If, during the course of a program, a U.S. State Department Travel Warning or Alert covering program dates and destinations is issued for the country(ies) in which the program is being conducted, students must be notified promptly and given an opportunity to withdraw from the program.

Refund Policy

  • If students withdraw as permitted in Sections VII.B, VII.C.2.(a) or VII.C.2.(b) prior to the commencement of the program, or if a program is canceled, students must receive a full refund of all monies advanced within twenty (20) days after the cancellation or withdrawal.

  • If students withdraw as permitted in Sections VII.B., VII.C.(a) or VII.C.2.(b) during the course of the program, or if the program is terminated, students must be refunded fees paid except for room and board payments utilized prior to the date of termination or withdrawal.

Withdrawal

Students may withdraw from the program provided the request is made in writing to paris.law@cornell.edu or L46 Hughes Hall, Cornell Law School, Ithaca, NY, 14853, USA.

Withdrawal will be effective upon receipt of the notice. Depending on the reason and timing for withdrawal, students may be entitled to a refund of amounts paid before withdrawal. The following outlines our withdrawal deadline policy:

  • If the program is canceled prior to the commencement of the program, students will be notified immediately and issued a full refund of all tuition and fees; or

  • If the program is terminated during the course of the program, students will be notified immediately, withdrawn from the program and issued a full refund of all tuition and fees.

  • No refunds will be granted after June 1st, except in cases of documented illness.

  • Under no circumstances is the law school responsible for financial losses caused by travel arrangements and housing costs due to the cancellation or termination of the program.

Program Modifications

Cornell Law School reserves the right to alter or modify the program if, for example, a course is under-enrolled or a professor is ill. If changes in the course offerings or other significant aspects of the program occur, affected students will be notified promptly by email and provided with the opportunity to select different courses or to withdraw. If a student chooses to withdraw due to program modifications, he or she will be issued a full refund of all tuition and fees within 20 days of withdrawal.
