This comprehensive and authoritative guide to licensing law is written by the UK’s only Professor of licensing law. Providing a detailed exposition of the law and practice in relation to alcohol and entertainment licensing law, the author sets out the background to the legislation, the legislative framework of the act and its implications for human rights.

Fully updated and revised, this volume discusses the various forms of authorisation for licensable activities under the Act and licence and certificate conditions as well as the enforcement and appeal provisions of the Act, and the important transitional provisions for the introduction of the new licensing schemes.

New additions to this edition include:

  • expanded coverage of enforcement; examining police powers and underage drinking
  • updated chapters on Appeals, in light of the practical and procedural developments that have evolved in the appeal process
  • discussions of recent case law and changes to existing regulations, including the revised Statutory
  • Guidance in light of the Licensing Act 2003.
This book is essential reading for all local authorities, legal advisers, licensing policy advisors, operators and the police as well as those applying for licences.
