The Wine and Spirits Law Society has two basic missions. The first is to educate its members and Mason Law students about wine law, which encompasses most major legal fields, including employment, trademark, contract, property, environmental, and even constitutional law. To pursue this goal, the organization brings in speakers who practice in these fields to discuss important developments in wine law. The group also plans to explore zoning regulations and distribution strategies. Its second mission is a social function. Since local micro-brewers and brewpubs are starting to gain a foothold in the area, students will have an opportunity to sample some of these local products at different events.
