Upcoming CLE on Beer, Wine & Distilled Spirits Law with myLawCLE

On September 15, 2016 at 2:00 PM EST, I will be presenting a CLE on beer, wine, and Distilled Spirits Law with my colleague John Messinger. The CLE, titled “Beer, Wine & Distilled Spirits Law: Federal Regulation 101″ will have a live broadcast and will also be available on demand. A summary is below:

Beer Wine Distilled Spirits Law Federal Regulation 101When a consumer pops open a bottle of wine or sips his favorite scotch, rarely does one consider the level of regulation the beverage has passed through in order to find its way to market and on the dinner table. Alcohol beverages, however, are subject to a web of federal, state, and even local regulations that are often arcane, unclear, and reflective of Prohibition-era attitudes. This seminar will start with a discussion of the history of alcohol beverage regulation, along with an overview of the federal agency that has primary jurisdiction to regulate alcohol beverages. Then we’ll examine the types of licenses required for industry members and classification of products, along with formulation requirements for beer, wine, and spirits. Finally, we will discuss labeling, advertising, and recent updates to federal laws, class action lawsuits, and direct shipping to consumers.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Introduction (History of beer, wine, and spirits regulation in the U.S.)
  • Licensing (Federal Permits)
  • Classification of Products
  • Labeling
  • Advertising
  • Hot Topics in Beer, Wine and Distilled Spirits Law

This is an updated presentation similar to the presentation John and I gave last year for myLawCLE. It will contain several new categories and updates in each topic.
