If you are asking the question and the answer of giving booze to minors sounds a little fishy, then you probably already know the answer. It is against the law to do this, in some states you can klose your license and go to jail for furnishing alcohol. Also, if one of those kids got drunk and had an accident, your friend could be civily liable and be forced to pay monetary damages. A lawyer will not give his/her blessing to your friend, sorry.
