Cocktail Party Law is designed to give practitioners safe and solid answers to legal questions raised by friends and family that may fall outside of their typical areas of practice.  There will be three panels.  The first session is entitled "Criminal Law: What Happens When Your Client's Kid Gets Arrested?" and will focus on the law and legal proceedings related to minor in possession and open container violations, municipal prosecutions, DUIs, and controlled substance/drug court violations.  Speakers are Brett Bloomston, Tommy Spina and Kechia Davis.  The second session is entitled "Buying, Selling, Renting, and Leasing" and will focus on issues related both to buying and selling a home and renting and leasing properties, with insight from both the landlord and tenant's perspective, which will include a discussion of up and coming issues, including those related to online services such as Air BnB and VRBO.  Speakers are Price Evans, Norman Winston and Katrina Brown.  Finally, the third session is entitled "Opening a Small Business: A Case Study in Bars and Breweries" and that session's focus will be on the technical process of forming and opening a small business (including LLC formation, real estate and insurance issues, and economic incentives, among others), with special attention paid to regulations and other issues related to breweries, bars, and restaurants.  Speakers are David Carn, Tripp Watson, and Chris Cullen.
