As in-person hearings return and the next challenges post-restrictions come into sight, what does the licensing new normal look like?
In In our new online Licensing Conference a panel of experts, chaired by Stephen McGowan of TLT, will consider the key developments that those practicing in the field of licensing law should be aware of and will provide guidance to help you navigate the next stage successfully.
Jim Wilson, Licensing Team Leader at the Scottish Government’s Criminal Law, Practice and Licensing Unit will provide the keynote presentation on bouncing back from the pandemic and what important licensing work strands are currently being progressed within the licensing team in the Scottish Government. Other sessions will include a focus on the place within the licensing system for club premises, sexual entertainment venues licensing, short-term lets, taxi guidance, fairgrounds and the licensing of large events and festivals.
