The theme for the 2014   National Licensing Conference will be the public interest purpose of   licensing as it relates to communities, economic interests and the law. It   has been said that the grant of a licence is an act of administrative   discretion in the public interest. But what is the public interest and how is   it represented in the licensing process? The conference will explore what the   public interest means in terms of the law and society.

Building on ten years of   success, the conference continues to be the showcase event on licensing   issues in Scotland.

Over the years there have   been several landmark policy and legislative announcements made at the conference,   such as minimum unit pricing.

The conference will hear from   expert speakers presenting the very latest licensing policy and practice, as   well as panel discussions and plenty of time for questions.
