Licensing and Regulatory Concerns in the Bar and Restaurant Industry - 23721

Faculty: Aaron Pierce, Esq.

Admit it, at some point or another you’ve considered leaving the legal world behind, moving to a small town, and opening a bar. You should do it (but makes sure to continue doing CLE’s to maintain your license!), but before you quit your job you should watch this CLE video by Aaron Pierce on licensing and regulatory issues in the restaurant and bar industry. In this two hour lecture, Mr. Pierce helps explain just how much legal work actually goes into opening a restaurant and why exactly employees must wash their hands. Even if you are happy with your legal job, this is a great lecture to watch and gain insight into a world that you only see from the outside.
