LAW224  A  MODERN ALCOHOL BEVERAGE LAW

Course Description
The manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages are heavily regulated and have at times been prohibited. By the term of Repeal, states have authority vis-a-vis alcoholic beverages that they do not have over ordinary commercial enterprises. This course looks at evolving federal-state jurisdiction over alcoholic beverages and at the varied state alcoholic beverage regimes. This course investigates complex constitutional questions about jurisdiction, similar in this respect to federal courts, choice of law, and admiralty law. Regulation of the manufacture, distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages will be examined. The history of these subjects will be included, since the shadow of prohibition still looms over them.
