Terms of Use for Lawyers Design School

Hey friend!

Please read these terms of use carefully before entering our website or online courses.

Now that you’re here, we need to set some ground rules for our relationship. We have prepared these Terms of Use that will apply when you access and use either our Website or our online training platform, which we call the Service. Our Service consists of online courses that may include live trainings, course videos, downloadable materials and other information.

In addition to these Terms of Use, we have a separate Privacy Policy (and California addendum for California residents) that will explain to you how we collect and use your personal data. Please have a look at that as well. These Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy together form the legal basis for your visit and use of the Website and the Services. 

You don’t need to sign anything here. Simply using the Website or the Service is enough for us to know that you have accepted these ground rules and that you agree with them. At some point we may request you to click your acceptance as well. We call your agreement to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy later as “this Agreement”. 

If you don’t want to be bound by these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, do not access the Website and immediately discontinue using the Service. 

By the way, when we use the word “You”, we mean both you as a person and the entity you may be representing here.
