Third Time Lucky? Will the New Licensing Bill finally deal with the issues of the 2005 Act?
Date 15/10/2014
Speaker Stephen McGowan (Partner, TLT LLP)
Seminar Details The new Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Bill seeks to make significant changes to the alcohol licensing and civic licensing regimes, but practitioners are already saying it does not go far enough and has ignored pleas from many stakeholders. Stephen McGowan presents an overview of the proposed changes, what this will mean for solicitors and licensing boards, the trade itself and the practical implications for those dealing with the system on a daily basis. He will also discuss why this further attempt at creating an efficient and fair licensing regime for Scotland is a disappointment for practitioners, with a plea for the Government to consider the many technical issues which have yet again been overlooked.

Stephen McGowan is a specialist licensing solicitor and is Head of Licensing at TLT Scotland Limited. He has written two books dealing with licensing law in Scotland. Stephen is a member of the Law Society of Scotland Licensing Sub-committee and the Institute of Licensing National Advisory Panel.
