Licensing and Gambling Law in Scotland: A Practical Guide
The law and practice surrounding the operation of licensed and gambling premises have been radically overhauled in recent years. The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Gambling Act 2005 have introduced new forms of licence, increased supervisory powers and made approved training mandatory.
This new text is a comprehensive and accessible guide to how the 2005 statutes operate in practice. It is also the first Scottish publication to examine how other regulatory regimes – including planning, building standards, private security, and copyright – impact on licensed premises.
The text illustrates the operation of the licensing laws by the use of real-life and colourful examples, addresses potential problems and pitfalls, and offers solutions to them. It is written to be of use not only to legal practitioners, but also to all those involved in licensing and gambling administration.
