Conference on Personal Finance Law

CONFERENCE ON PERSONAL FINANCE LAW

The Conference on Personal Finance Law was founded in 1927 to encourage study, research, and education in the area of personal finance law. Its members are lawyers. The conference disseminates information on the history and current status of laws and regulations pertaining to personal finance, provides a forum for exchange of views on the subject among lawyers in the hope of stimulating improvement of legal procedures, and fosters sound development of consumer finance through education and publication. The conference stages an annual argument before the supreme court of the mythical state of Franklin in order to dramatize an important issue in the field of consumer credit.

The conference publishes Quarterly Report and programs and briefs related to the annual argument, which is staged during the american bar association annual meeting.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
