Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or just want to stay current, this series is a great way for you to stay on top of industry trends and practices.

    The series is organized with the law firm of White & Lee, and each session is introduced by a White & Lee attorney who will provide an overview of the legal and business issues associated with that topic.
