The challenges to the licensing industry have been numerous over the past 18 months.

Questions to be considered will include:
How do you advise in times of crisis?
What lessons can be learned from a review of legal challenges to Covid-19 restrictions on licensed premises?
What is the future of occasional licences?
What are the rules and conditions for delivery of alcohol and when is a delivery, nit a delivery?
What is the likely impact of the short-term let proposals?
What are the current key civic government issues?
Join us and our panel of experts to discuss these important questions and consider the impact on your advice and your practice.
