"This was my first year in the CFA and my first CFA Franchise Law Day that I attended. It will most definitely NOT be my last. The amount of information presented by the various legal minds – you could not possibly buy that kind of knowledge anywhere and yet here it is under one roof in an easy to understand comprehensive forum."

"CFA Franchise Law Day provides up to date and informative discussions on practical legal issues regularly facing franchisors and franchisees, as well as advice on best practices in areas constantly undergoing change. Anyone who is involved in the administration of franchise legal affairs should not miss this program."
