Glenn B. Lassiter Jr., Glenn Lassiter Law, Pittsboro

Hear from an attorney who worked for the NC Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission for a decade before going into private practice to represent clients in hearings before the ABC Commission or OAH. Learn about the administrative law side: how businesses (restaurants, bars, clubs, etc.) must apply for and obtain a permit/license before serving or selling alcohol. Then, learn about the criminal law side: issues those same businesses encounter with local police and ALE officers. The session concludes by coming full circle back to the administrative law realm: contested case hearings and permit/license violation cases before the ABC Commission or OAH.

11:40       Why Systemic Discrimination and Inequity Require Us to Rethink the Role of Intent and Impact in our Policies and Laws*

Marcelius Braxton, Capital University School of Law, Columbus, OH

In law school, we often learned about the difference between intent and impact. We know that some laws, policies and structures have a certain impact on entities or people that were not explicitly stated or intended. Consider that perhaps we do ourselves a disservice by treating intent as an individual, standalone factor without also considering historical context. White supremacy, racial hierarchy and anti-Blackness have been present for centuries, and we need to revise how we examine a policy or law's intent in light of these systemic inequities.
