This chapter examines the franchise as a cultural and legal phenomenon. It discusses the growing dominance of the franchise form and its extension beyond the commonplace areas of business enterprise into realms of social life such as education, sport, and legal practice. It describes the legal and economic characteristic of the franchise and reviews literature which pinpoints the franchise as both a mechanism and a manifestation of intangible but important forces shaping society.

Keywords:   franchise, cultural phenomenon, legal phenomenon, legal practice, education, sport, society
