“This year’s Alcohol Law Symposium will offer expert insight and discussion about the importance of alcohol law, regulation and litigation to legal professionals, regulators, law enforcement and the public health community,” said Center Advisory Council member and former Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro.  “With litigation and legislation challenging alcohol laws and regulations in many states across the country, this is an invaluable program for anyone interested in the 21st Amendment.”

The Symposium offers 10 educational sessions on topics such as the effect of globalization on alcohol laws in the United States; trade practice laws; the history of U.S. alcohol regulation; the intersection of alcohol supplier contracts and state alcohol laws; liquor liability laws; a 21st Amendment litigation update; and more.

Nebraska Attorney General and National Association of Attorneys General President Jon Bruning will deliver a keynote address on the role of the state attorney general in upholding state-based alcohol regulation under the 21st Amendment. Other speakers and panelists include prominent alcohol law attorneys, a professor of alcoholic beverage law, current and former alcohol regulators and public health advocates.
