Orlando, FL – On Thursday, June 27th the Small Business Development Center at the University of Central Florida (SBDC at UCF) will once again host The Entrepreneur’s Law School, — a combination of seminars and workshops designed to educate small business owners about the latest developments in the legal landscape. In just one morning, legal professionals from the SBDC at UCF’s Small Business Resource Network (SBRN) will arm Central Florida area small business owners with information needed to both manage their business through important legal issues and reduce their risk and protect their businesses as they seek to grow them.  Small business owners will also have the opportunity to network with SBRN professionals with expertise in law, accounting, banking, and more.

“Because my practice has always been focused on assisting entrepreneurs and small businesses owners, I know where the legal risks and opportunities lie for their businesses. We have designed The Entrepreneur’s Law School to address these issues, and provide business owners with an understanding of how to manage their business from the legal perspective” said Ed Alexander, SBRN steering committee member and owner of the Entrepreneurship Law Firm, PL. “With business  law, what you don’t know CAN hurt you”.
