Alcohol Law & Policy Conference

We’d like to thank everyone who joined us virtually in September for our 13th Annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference! The conference consisted of a series of seminars scheduled over the course of four consecutive Wednesdays in September of 2020. In an effort to accommodate varied schedules and time zones, all sessions were made available on-demand to conference registrants after the live seminars concluded.

Our virtual event enjoyed attendance from over 200 regulators, public health advocates, industry representatives, attorneys and legislators, with representation from nearly all 50 states. Our audience heard from many distinguished presenters and experts on a range of topics including:

  • Covid-19 and its impact on alcohol regulation 
  • The Twenty-First Amendment and its future in the courts 
  • A look at the role of state epidemiologists in alcohol policy 
  • Challenges to Trade Practice 
  • Alcohol in the world of technology

The Center is a “go to” resource for up-to-date information on the important impacts of alcohol regulation, and its annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference highlights its important role in drawing out conversations of divergent interests. We thank you again for attending what was an exceptional event, and we hope to see you next year in Chicago, August 29-31, 2021!
