There is no registration fee. We will be tracking attendees based on your booking of the accommodation (for which you are responsible, logistically and financially) at the Centre or based on you telling us that you are attending but staying elsewhere. If you are not staying at the Centre and you do not know for sure that I know you are attending, please contact Stephen Pitel at Western.
The Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre is now taking bookings. You can make your booking over the web (https://resweb.passkey.com/go/WesternLaw) or by phone (1-888-678-6926).
