Alcohol Regulatory Law: 21st Century Issues
I gave a presentation today to Lewis & Clark Law School’s Business Law Society on the history of alcohol regulation in the US and the issues that are relevant today. We had a lively discussion of the modernization and/or privatization of the OLCC, the role of the initiative process, public interest, financial interests and other interests in today’s alcohol regulatory environment, and how understanding the history of alcohol regulatory law helped make sense of it all. It was great to see so many bright and interested students. We have a bright future with these law students in the pipeline.
