TABC Legal Services Division to Host Continuing Education for Alcohol Industry Attorneys

AUSTIN – The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission's Legal Services Division will host a free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) session highlighting some of the most common issues and questions related to upholding the Alcoholic Beverage Code.

TABC will host the program on September 25 at the agency's Austin headquarters, 5806 Mesa Drive, and the event is open to all interested attorneys. Attendees who complete the training will earn 2 hours of CLE credit.

"As attorneys who represent TABC, we understand some of the legal challenges related to enforcing a statute as complex as the Alcoholic Beverage Code," said TABC General Counsel Clark Smith. "The purpose of the program is to help attorneys representing TABC-licensed businesses with some of the most common sticking points in the law. The ultimate goal is to keep those businesses in compliance and allow them to better contribute to the Texas economy."
