New York Liquor Laws and Liquor Licensing

This class will teach the general practitioner how to counsel a client and file an application for a retail liquor license in New York for a restaurant, hotel, bar, club or liquor store.  You will learn who can and who cannot be licensed, what has to be disclosed, what premises may or may not be licensed, and how the process works before the local Community Boards and the New York State Liquor Authority.  We will also cover in detail the 200 foot rule relating to the proximity of schools and houses of worship, and the public interest test of the 500 foot rule.

This course is appropriate for both newly admitted attorneys and experienced attorneys.
