The Legal Symposium Task Force is already hard at work to organize a slate of compelling and educational sessions for the 2019 Symposium. To do that, we need your help! We want to solve all the inquiries that have been swimming around your mind, but to provide the answers we need you to share your questions. Provide us with your best suggestion for an educational session, its moderator and potential speakers. When making suggestions, please keep in mind that our goal is to provide sessions relevant to franchising from a business and legal perspective. The deadline for entries is Friday, July 13, 2018.
IFA’s Legal Symposium is designed by a task force of member volunteers with a particular emphasis on how legal and regulatory issues affect the everyday business operations of the franchise system. The program provides value and real-world solutions to both business executives and their franchise legal partners. Sessions focus on the practical use of the law, and the how-to’s for navigating today’s business and regulatory environment. The Legal Symposium is a training ground for what business executives and legal counsel need to know, and how to put it into practice.
Attendees can also earn CLE (Continuing Legal Education) and CFE (Certified Franchise Executives) credits by attending. Featuring expert speakers and timely content, our Symposium is a "must attend" event.
The 2019 Legal Symposium will be held at the JW Marriott in downtown Washington, DC - just steps from the White House!

The deadline for making a reservation is April 15, 2019, or when the IFA room block is filled, whichever is first.
