The mission of the Forum on Franchising is to be the preeminent forum for the study and discussion of the legal aspects of franchising.

44th Annual Forum on Franchising Meeting

October 13-15, 2021 | Atlanta, GA

After over a year of practicing franchise law from home offices and guest bedrooms, and seeing other franchise law practitioners only on computer screens, it is our immense pleasure to welcome you all to Atlanta on October 13-15, 2021 for this year’s ABA Forum on Franchising Annual Meeting. As always, the Annual Meeting will provide interesting and relevant franchise law programing that is both thought provoking and current. This meeting is intended for all experience levels – for new and seasoned franchise law practitioners – and offers content for litigators and transactional lawyers alike.
