Legal group looks to help communities ‘Bar Bad Bars’

The Community Law Center, a non-profit law firm led by Executive Director Kristine Dunkerton, Esq., is hosting a one-night only workshop for community leaders and neighbors who want to “Bar Bad Bars”.

The group, whose mission is to provide legal services to community and non-profit organizations to promote stronger and more vibrant neighborhoods, recently sent out an invite to those who may be interested in doing something about their neighborhood nuisance bar or liquor store. Hosted at their offices in Hampden on Tuesday, February 19th from 6:00-7:30 p.m., the group plans to address issues such as relevant liquor laws and regulations, how to negotiate with a liquor licensee, as well as what to expect at a Baltimore City Liquor Board hearing.

Led by their staff attorney Becky Witt, who has successfully shut down problem bars over the years, the group points to their work in recently shutting down a nuisance bar off of York Road, that was once a frequent hangout for rowdy Loyola and Towson State University students. Craig’s, a once popular nightlife college bar, was recently shut down with the group’s assistance, along with the work of neighborhood leaders in the Mid-Govans and Homeland communities.
